Abstract : The purpose of the report is to describe additional work accomplished by this laboratory on arsenic in well water at Edwards AFB, California. A large sample of water was subjected to an exhaustive analysis to determine if arsenic was present or if interferences caused the American Public Health Association (APHA) 'Standard Methods' procedure to yield erroneous results. The results of analyses performed by various methods including x-ray fluorescence, emission spectroscopy, and atomic absorption shows that arsenic was present. (Author)
