A Field Study to Compare Performance of Stainless Steel Research Monitoring Wells with Existing On-Farm Drinking Water Wells in Measuring Pesticide and Nitrate Concentraitons
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development

Existing drinking water wells are widely used for the collection of groundwater samples to evaluate chemical contamination. This study compared data collected from existing wells with that collected from stainless steel research monitoring wells. The results could help determine which wells are more accurate in measuring contamination and in making decisions about future study designs. Data from 21 research wells and 78 existing on-farm wells was collected at 74 sites within the Little Coharie Watershed in eastern North Carolina for this study.

Delivering Timely Water Quality Information to Your Community: The Jefferson Parish-Louisiana Project
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development

Providing water quality information that is timely and easy to use and understand is a challenge, but is an important way to engage communities in water quality protection. This handbook presents the strategies of EPA´s EMPACT (Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking) program, which was developed as a way to provide residents of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, with timely water quality data that could be easily understood and used by the community. Using the Jefferson Parish project as a model, the handbook provides communities with step-by-step instructions on how to gather time-relevant water quality information, how to analyze the data, and how to graphically present and communicate the results to the community.

Estimating the Likelihood of MTBE Occurrence in Drinking Water Supplied by Ground-Water Sources in the Northeaset and Mid-Atlantic Regions of the United States
U.S. Department of the Interior, U.S. Geological Survey

Compounds that contain oxygen, or oxygenates, are added to gasoline to enhance performance. Methyl tert-butyl ether -MTBE- is most commonly used and has been frequently detected in surface and groundwater. This study examines the chances of MTBE's presence in groundwater, estimates the probability that a municipal or private-supply well will be contaminated, and estimates the number of wells with MTBE at or above concentrations of regulatory concern.

Impact of Pipe Coatings on Drinking Water Quality
The City of Calgary, Engineering and Environmental Services Department

This booklet presents case studies of trace chemical contamination in the city of Calgary's distribution system. In most of the cases, it was observed that the cause of the contamination was the internal pipe coating material. Results suggest that proper and careful selection of the pipe linings and testing are required to provide safe drinking water.

Methods for the Determination of Organic and Inorganic Compounds in Drinking Water; Volume 1
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Ground Water & Drinking Water

Accurate and precise analytical measurements are essential to detemine the quality and character of drinking water. This volume provides seven methods for analyzing organic compounds and four methods for analyzing inorganic compounds in drinking water, many of which are already approved for drinking water compliance monitoring or for performing analysis required in the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Regulation.

National Pesticide Survey: Update and Summary of Phase II Results
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Water, Office of Pesticides and Toxic Substances

This survey was carried out by EPA's Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water and Pesticide Program. In Phase II, EPA has carried out statistical analyses of the survey data and other studies to determine how the presence of pesticides in drinking water wells is associated with pesticide use patterns. EPA also studied how concentrations of pesticides in drinking water is affected by sensitivity of groundwater to contamination.
