Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater was first published in 1905. Since that time, and through 20 editions, Standard Methods has included hundreds of analytical techniques for the determination of water quality.
These techniques have been developed by a number of water quality researchers who have been members of the Standard Methods Committee (SMC). This committee, consisting of over 500 people, is charged with the review and approval of methods to be included in Standard Methods. In addition, committee members serve on Joint Task Groups (JTGs) that are charged with the review, revision, and approval of a specific section of Standard Methods.
