WWTP, wastewater treatment plant; Q, quality assurance; NS, not sampled; NA, not analyzed; --, not applicable; <, less than; E, estimated; FB, field blank; OFB, office equipment blank; FR, field replicate; Compounds are reported as estimated due to the following: (1) compounds had low recoveries, (2) high variable recoveries, (3) unstable instrument response, or (4) standards from a technical mixture. Bromoform concentrations possibly elevated due to probable reaction of free chlorine with bromide and dissolved organic carbon.

The data format is Microsoft Excel, the text files which can be imported into most spreadsheet programs.
