Interpreting Results

Interpreting data is an important part of drinking water quality testing. You need to know how to make basic conclusions and recommendations, and how to identify common errors in recording DWQT data. This module will also provide guidance on choosing the appropriate analysis method, and how to assess the efficiency of water treatment methods by calculating removal rates. Practice problems will reinforce the main learnings in this module.
