Event Overview

Access to clean drinking water is a crucial element of public health and wellbeing, and regulated in the USA by the Safe Drinking Water Act. Preventing wastewater contamination is part of environmental protection and part of the Clean Water Act. Both laws require monitoring of drinking and wastewater on a regular basis. Total Organic Carbon and Total Organic Halides are two important water quality parameters regulated by the EPA.

The webcast will demonstrate and compare different techniques for the analysis of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) and Organic Halides (AOX/TOX) in different types of water. Various instrumental solutions, optimized for different usage scenarios, will be presented to provide current and future analysts with the knowledge required to make informed purchasing decisions, and use their instruments efficiently to provide a high quality of analysis results.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • The importance of clean and safe drinking water
  • Technical considerations for reliable TOC, TNb, and AOX/TOX analysis in various water samples
  • Good practices for sample preparation and sample handling

Who Should Attend:

  • Lab managers and chemists involved in water analysis
  • Water treatment plant managers, chemists and operators
  • Environmental engineers, chemists and technicians
