Reporting Limits for Sampled Constituents: Total Coliform -- 1 mpn/100 mL E.coli -- 1 mpn/100 mL Turbidity -- 0 NTU Total Organic Carbon (TOC) -- 1.0 mg/L ** See attached PDF for specifications and limits of water quality parameters collected in the field with YSI 556 multimeter. (Temperature, Conductivity, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Dissolved Oxygen (DO), pH, Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP). ** Please note: pH readings do exhibit some outliers due to malfunctioning pH probe. Analytical Method: Total Coliform & E. coli by MPN, TOC, turbidity. 2005-2008.
