Standard Guide for Planning and Preparing for a Groundwater Sampling Event
|Publication Date:||10 March 1996|
1.1 This guide covers planning and preparing for a ground-water sampling event. It includes technical and administrative considerations and procedures. Example checklists are also provided as Appendices.
1.2 This guide may not cover every consideration procedure, or both, that is necessary before all ground-water sampling projects. In karst or fractured rock terranes, it may be appropriate to collect ground water samples from springs (see Guide D 5717). This guide focuses on sampling of ground water from monitoring wells; however, most of the guidance herein can apply to the sampling of springs as well.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
