EPA Method 310.1:
Alkalinity by Titration. Official Name: Alkalinity (Titrimetric, pH 4.5)

Summary:
An unaltered sample is titrated to an electrometrically determined end point of pH 4.5. The sample must not be filtered, diluted, concentrated, or altered in any way.

Scope:
This method is applicable to drinking, surface, and saline waters; domestic and industrial wastes. The method is suitable for all concentration ranges of alkalinity; however appropriate aliquots should be used to avoid a titration volume greater than 50mL.

Citation:
Methods for the Chemical Analysis of Water and Wastes (MCAWW) (EPA/600/4-79/020)
