The report outlines a philosophy and strategy for preparing environmental assessment sampling and analysis (test) plans. Five major points of test plan development are addressed: (1) defining the test objectives, (2) performing an engineering analysis of the test site, (3) developing a sampling strategy, (4) selecting analytical methods, and (5) defining data management procedures. The important considerations involved in each area are discussed in relation to three types of environmental tests: (1) waste stream (Levels 1, 2, and 3), (2) control equipment, and (3) process stream characterization. Specific sampling and analytical methods are presented, with numerous references cited for more detailed information.
