Title: Heavy metals in drinking water: Standards, sources, and effects. (Latest citations from the Life Sciences Collection data base). Published Search

Abstract

The bibliography contains citations concerning the public health aspects and documented studies of heavy metal pollutants in drinking water. Topics include human exposure studies and the toxicological effects incurred by ingestion. Prolonged exposure and quantification factors and effects, federal and state regulations and standards, and laboratory animal studies are discussed. Among the pollution pathways examined are landfill contamination of groundwater, acid precipitation contributions to groundwater pollution, and corrosion by-products in residential plumbing and public water supply transport systems. (Contains a minimum of 105 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
