Explanation: mg/L = milligrams per Liter; µg/L = micrograms per Liter; ft = feet; NR = No Reading in GWIC
Qualifiers: A = Hydride atomic absorption; E = Estimated due to interference; H = Exceeded holding time; J = Estimated quantity above detection limit but below reporting limit; K = Na+K combined; N = Spiked sample recovery not within control limits; P = Preserved sample; S = Method of standard additions; U = Undetected quantity below detection limit; * = Duplicate analysis not within control limits; ** = Sum of Dissolved Constituents is the sum of major cations (Na, Ca, K, Mg, Mn, Fe) and anions (HCO3, CO3, SO4, Cl, SiO2, NO3, F) in mg/L. Total Dissolved Solids is reported as equivalent weight of evaporation residue.
