Standard Test Method for Strontium in Water

Significance and Use

Although most potable supplies contain little strontium, some well waters in the midwestern part of the United States have levels as high as 39 mg/L.3

This test method affords a reliable means of accurately determining strontium and correcting calcium results obtained by the methods cited in 6.2.

Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of dissolved and total recoverable strontium in water and wastewater by atomic absorption spectroscopy.

1.2 The test method is applicable in the range from 0.1 to 1 mg/L of strontium. The range may be extended by dilution of the original sample.

1.3 Round-robin data were obtained in natural and reagent water matrices. It is the user's responsibility to ensure the validity of the test method for waters of untested matrices.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in 8.4 and 8.9.
