a. One part per million is equivalent to one pound of substance per million pounds of water or 8.33 pounds per million gallons of water.
b. An equivalent per million is a unit chemical equivalent weight of solute per million unit weights of solution. Concentration in equivalents per million is calculated by dividing the concentration in parts per million by the chemical combining weight of the substance or ion.
c. Situated in Lane County.
d. Sample also contains 2.4 parts per million carbonate (0.08 equivalents per million).
e. Sample also contains 22 parts per million carbonate (0.73 equivalents per million).
f. Total alkalinity, 280 parts per million; excess alkalinity, 16 parts per million.
g. Sample also contains 4.8 parts per million carbonate (0.16 equivalents per million).
