Significance and Treatment of Volatile Organic Compounds in Water Supplies reviews EPA-approved analytical methods for VOC analysis, QA/QC, data quality objectives and limits of detection. It covers current methods for the assessment of health effects, including toxicity and carcinogenicity. If you only purchase one book on VOCs-this should be it. Leading authorities present the latest essential information on VOCs in drinking water. This book will be a valuable resource to personnel involved with VOC contamination, treatment, costs, and regulation.
