The paper is intended to familiarize RPMs, OSCs, and field personnel with the sources of error inherent to ground-water sampling, and the relative impact of these errors on sample representativeness. Elements of typical sampling protocol will be discussed in relation to how these sources of error can be identified and minimized. Some of the elements of sampling protocol to be addressed include monitoring well drilling, design, construction, and purging, sample collection methods and devices, sample filtration, equipment decontamination, sample transport and storage, and analytical methods.
