Abstract : X-ray fluorescence analysis was evaluated for determining trace metals in samples of interest in the Water Quality Control Program. A number of toxic elements including Pb were determined in Potomac River water and Blue Plains sewage sludge. Analysis by x-rays has sufficient detectability to determine both insoluble and soluble pollutants in river water and effluent waste. (Author)
