The objective of the program was to perform a field validation of the VOST and SemiVOST methods as written at a coal fired power plant in a manner that will allow the collection of sufficient valid data to be able to establish the bias and precision of the methods for the halogenated organic compounds listed in Title III of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. Pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, 2,3,7,8-tetrachloro-p-dibenzodioxin, and dibenzofurans were excluded from the study because EPA specific methods already exist for these compounds. To achieve this objective, a field test site was selected to allow access for the quadruple sampling trains required for testing. Collection and evaluation of the data followed one of the acceptable approaches detailed in the EPA Method 301.
