Scope:
This method describes procedures for the determination of nitrate/nitrite-nitrogen, or oxidized nitrogen, in drinking, ground, and surface water; domestic and industrial waste; and biosolids (treated municipal sewage sludge). Automated photometry is used to determine the nitrate/nitrite concentration of the sample.
