Sites where the wastes are of large size or varied composition, including landfills and drum dumps, present severe difficulties to investigators attempting to collect representative samples to facilitate site cleanup decisions. This document serves as the workshop proceedings. It summarizes the study planning tools, sampling design strategies now in use, identifying the advantages and disadvantages of each. Areas that would benefit from research or development, or the adoption of new approaches, are identified. Regulatory definitions are augmented with practical working definitions. The discussion of the study planning process emphasizes the establishment of reasonable goals and the participation of the decision maker, and the technical specialists.
