Microbiological criteriam, Radionuclides & Turbidity prevailing Safe Drinking Water Act Regulations (N.J.A.C. 7:10-1 et seq.)

Explanation of Terms:

* = Ground Water Quality Criteria and PQLs are expressed as ug/L unless otherwise noted. Table 1 criteria are all maximum values unless clearly indicated as a range for which the minimum value is to the left and the maximum value is to the right.
** = revised via administrative change (see 39 N.J.R. 3538(a)).

PQL -- Practical Quantitation Level as defined in N.J.A.C. 7:9-6.4


CASRN - Chemical Abstracts System Registration Number


NA = not available for this constituent.


a = Asbestos criterion is measured in terms of fibers/L longer than 10 micrometers (f/L > 10 um)


ug = micrograms, L = liter, f = fibers, CU= Standard Cobalt Units


b = Odor Threshold Number, mg = milligrams, H = Hardness


(Total) means the concentration of metal in an unfiltered sample following treatment with hot dilute mineral acid (as defined in "Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water & Wastes", EPA-600/4-79-020, March 1979) or other digestion defined by the analytical method. However samples that contain less than 1 nephlometric turbidity unit (NTU) and are properly preserved, may be directly analyzed without digestion.


m = Pursuant to prevailing Safe Drinking Water Act Regulations any positive result for fecal coliform is in violation of the MCL and is therefore an exceedance of the ground water quality standards.
