Julie - 

The first place I would start would be EPA SW-846

This will provide you with a list of analytical methods approved by the 
EPA for different waste streams. Lots of good info to get you started.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Wastewater testing

We are looking into testing for metal concentrations in our waste water
in house.  We are a metal fabrication facility in Indiana, and need to
test for Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Lead, Nickel, Silver, and Zinc.

I have been tasked with investigating methods and equipment that will be
required.  Can anyone in this group share their experience/knowledge in
testing for metal concentrations in wastewater?  What methods do you
use?  What works best?  Are there additional resources that you can
point me towards?
