A drinking water treatment plant manager will define high-quality water as water with a minimum amount of substances that have to be removed or treated to produce safe and palatable drinking water. A broad view of high-quality water will take into consideration its suitability for particular uses. S. ” In the law, water quality is a measure of its suitability for particular designated uses. 1 2 Applications of Environmental Aquatic Chemistry Implementing the law entails identifying these uses, setting standards that are protective of the designated uses, and providing enforcement procedures that require compliance with the standards.

The chemical content of a water body is estimated by qualitative chemical analysis of collected environmental samples. Qualitative analysis identifies the chemical species present in the sample but not the quantity (although qualitative and quantitative analyses are often combined in a single measurement). Some of the analytical methods used are gas and ion chromatography, mass spectroscopy, optical emission and absorption spectroscopy, electrochemical probes, so-called wet chemistry tests, and immunoassay testing.
