- Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) : A Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) is the highest level of a Contaminant that is allowed in drinking water.
- Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) : A Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) is the level of a Contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
A Maximum expiratory flow (Vmax x) is Forced expiratory flow, related to the total lung capacity or the actual volume of the lung at which the measurement is made. Modifiers refer to
