The report gives a master test plan, presenting the objectives and general structure of a field testing program designed for an environmental source assessment of coal cleaning processes. The report, to be used to prepare test plans for individual coal cleaning sites, reflects the common thread running through a series of various sites. It includes the background and objectives of Battelle's overall program for EPA, entitled 'Environmental Assessment of Coal Cleaning Processes'. The report emphasizes the philosophy of the field testing program and the elements of sampling and sample analysis which are common to all test sites. Coal cleaning facilities to be tested in the 10 site categories will be evaluated at three sampling and analytical levels. Level 1 tests identify problem areas that are assessed by the more rigorous Level 2 tests. Level 3 involves long-term monitoring of 'key' indicator parameters which have been identified in the environmentally hazardous streams tested by Level 2 techniques. Environmental source assessments will: systematically evaluate the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of selected process streams and all effluent streams; predict the potential effects of those streams on the environment; rank the streams according to their relative biological toxicity; and identify areas requiring further research and development.
