EPA Method 1669:
Metals, Trace at Water Quality Criteria Levels

Summary:
This sampling method was designed to support water quality monitoring programs authorized under the Clean Water Act. Section 304(a) of the Clean Water Act requires EPA to publish water quality criteria that reflect the latest scientific knowledge concerning the physical fate (e.g., concentration and dispersal) of pollutants, the effects of pollutants on ecological and human health, and the effect of pollutants on biological community diversity, productivity, and stability.

Scope:
This method is for the collection and filtration of ambient water samples for subsequent determination of total and dissolved metals at the levels. It is designed to support the implementation of water quality monitoring and permitting programs administered under the Clean Water Act.
