General Chemistry Analysis

Water chemistry analyses are carried out to identify and quantify the chemical components and properties of a certain water. This include pH, major cations and anions, trace elements and isotopes. Water chemistry analysis is used extensively to determine the possible uses a water may have or to study the interaction it has with its environment. Water chemistry analysis is often the groundwork of studies of water quality, pollution, hydrology and geothermal waters. See our General Chemistry Analysis profile...

1- MAC- Denotes Maximum Acceptable Concentration- Maximum Regulated amount allowed by Canadian Guidelines.

2-IMAC- Denotes Interim Maximum Acceptable Concentration, set for chemical/physical parameters under review.

3-AO- Denotes Aesthetic Objective-guidelines established for the subjective qualities of water.

All Guidelines established by the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water, April, 2004.


mg/L= Milligrams per Liter equivalent to parts per million (ppm)

1 mg/L= 1000 Micrograms per Liter ( µg/L) equivalent to 1000 parts per billion (ppb)
