The project was initiated to supplement and update existing guidance documents for effective ground-water monitoring efforts. The areas of primary concern were the potential sources of errors in chemical analyses of subsurface samples caused by well construction and sampling materials, techniques or procedures. A critical review of the literature was conducted on various aspects of monitoring natural waters, materials' performance data and unpublished information on the success of various ground-water monitoring techniques. The results of the literature review were collected and reviewed by a panel of experts from government agencies, private hydrological consulting firms, the manufacturing industry and national standards organization. The publication consists of a thorough discussion of ground-water monitoring stratigies, requirements and pitfalls. It concludes with a detailed treatment of the costs and benefits of recommended monitoring design criteria.
