    What Is pH, And How Is It Measured?

    Almost all processes containing water have a need for pH measurement. The pH of wastewater leaving manufacturing plants and wastewater purification plants, as well as potable water from municipal drinking water plants, must be within a specific pH "window" as set forth by local, state, or federal regulatory agencies. By Frederick J. Kohlmann
