In order to ensure that the data collected for trace metals determinations at ambient water quality criteria levels are valid and not a result of contamination, rigorous quality control (QC) must be applied to all sample collection, preparation, and analysis activities. Chapter 2 of this document outlines the data elements that must be reported by laboratories and permittees so that EPA reviewers can validate the data. Chapter 3 provides guidance concerning the review of data collected and reported in accordance with Chapter 2. Chapter 4 provides a Data Inspection Checklist that can be used to standardize procedures for documenting the findings of each data inspection.
