Abstract:
With the growing problem of ground water contamination by volatile organic substances, drinking water sampling programs are being initiated throughout the United States. A need was recognized for a manual on well water sampling that would bridge the gap between highly technical documents and over -simplified reviews. A primer was therefore developed on establishing and implementing a sampling program. Current information was collected by means of both library research and extensive contact with public agency employees and practicing hydrologists. Portions of a sampling program that required explanation included selection of priority wells, proper sampling at the well head, sample preservation and shipment, chain of custody procedures, laboratory selection, quality assurance and data evaluation. Explanation of these steps is intended to help ensure the legal defensibility of any collected data.
