ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of understanding environmental analytical data better to allow professionals and non-specialists in the water industry to make good decisions. It is said that analysts and other professionals should be capable of producing and evaluating analytical data to assess its quality. The author notes the need to know certain questions to ask about an analysis and the process of interpreting data. He suggests water companies to make it their objective to become intelligent clients for analytical data providers.
