Version 2.0 this popular CD-ROM from the EPA's Office of Water lets you search, print and display the full text of more than 500 EPA wastewater and drinking water methods and guidance documents. Additionally, the CD-ROM contains the full text of all EPA methods approved for compliance monitoring at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 136 and 141 including the 500-, 600- and 1600-series methods and a complete version of the March 1983 revision of Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Waste (MCAWW). For the first time, the Office of Water CD-ROM identifies which methods are approved at 40 CFR parts 136 and 141 for wastewater and drinking water compliance monitoring.

Accessing approved EPA water test methods has never been easier. To find which methods are approved for an analyte of interest, simply click on the CFR tables and search by analyte. Then, click on the EPA method number listed for that analyte to instantly access the full text of the method. The CD-ROM includes a powerful text search engine to allow searches by method number, analyte name, and keywords. Further, all methods and guidance are linked allowing you to electronically jump from the Table of Contents to documents of interest or search the Analyte List for a regulated pollutant and instantaneously jump to the recommeded methods. All analytical methods, guidance documents, and graphics have been converted to Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format to facilitate efficient text searches.

Never before has such a comprehensive collection of wastewater and drinking water methods and guidance been available from one source. Each document is complete including all tables, diagrams, figures, and flowcharts; the CD-ROM allows you to cut and paste text and tables to develop laboratory standard operating procedures. This valuable reference tool will eliminate the inconvenience of bulky hardcopy materials that clutter up your office or laboratory.
