Chemical speciation of lead compounds in street dusts.


that optimized conventional treatment can significantly reduce chrysotile levels in potable water. I t is felt that objective predictions and/or conclusions as to treatment efficiency are presently impossible given the current state-of-the-art in counting technology. Analytical methodology for chrysotile asbestos in water in often not sufficiently precise to detect concentration changes across unit processes. No definite correlation between fiber concentration and turbidity was observed. Consistent quantitative analysis of chrysotile asbestos fibers in river water following fortification with a concentrated chrysotile asbestos suspension could not be obtained.
