This study addresses the two primary groups of uncertainties regarding the implementation of a groundwater quality monitoring program for MIS oil shale development such as proposed for Federal Prototype Lease Tracts C-a and C-b. Hydrogeologic characterization, an essential element in siting monitor wells and for the design of the wells to obtain consistent and representative samples, is discussed in terms of geophysical and hydraulic methods that are employed on the Federal Tracts. These methods are also appropriate for other areas with oil shale stratigraphy. Geophysical and hydraulic methods are evaluated and ranked relative to cost, potential effectiveness, and availability of testing equipment in the oil shale region. Sampling methods are discussed, covering a wide variety of monitoring elements.
