There are standards of water quality set for each of these three classes of attributes.The national standards for drinking water are developed by the federal government's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). All municipal (public) water supplies must be measured against these standards.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarlywork, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
