EMT provides Low Level Hexavalent Chromium (Cr+6) analysis
EMT, Inc. provides Hexavalent Chromium analysis by EPA Method 218.6 "Determination of Dissolved Hexavalent Chromium in Drinking Water, Groundwater, and Industrial Wastewater Effluents by Ion Chromatography".
EPA regularly re-evaluates drinking water standards; a rigorous and comprehensive review of chromium-6 health effects began following the release of the toxicity studies by the National Toxicology Program in 2008.
The EPA is providing guidance to water systems on how they may monitor for chromium-6 in addition to the monitoring they are required to perform for total chromium.
As stated by the EPA at http://water.epa.gov/drink/info/chromium/guidance.cfm :
Should my water system conduct enhanced monitoring for Chromium-6?
Given the emerging public health information, EPA is providing this guidance to all public water systems to show how a system could enhance chromium monitoring through additional sampling and analysis specifically for chromium-6.
How can I find a laboratory to measure chromium-6?
The analytical instrumentation required for EPA Method 218.6 is not uncommon in drinking water laboratories: however, many laboratories may not be "set-up" to offer this analysis. Laboratories that have the necessary equipment and are certified by an accrediting authority to conduct an approved ion chromatography method (e.g., EPA Method 300.0, SM 4110B, ASTM D4327) should be given preferential consideration to provide this analytical support.
EMT, Inc. fulfills the EPA's requirements and will provide the analysis as well as the sampling protocols required by EPA Method 218.6 "Determination of Dissolved Hexavalent Chromium in Drinking Water, Groundwater, and Industrial Wastewater Effluents by Ion Chromatography".
