Notes
Although not a NELAC State, Nevada regulations cite the 2003 NELAC Standard and the Manual for the Certification of Laboratories Analyzing Drinking Water (MCLADW). All labs (Mining labs being the exception) in Nevada are required to abide by MCLADW regardless of Program (RCRA, CWA) and have to meet the drinking water criteria.
