The document along with a previous document (EPA-450/4-89-015, August 1989) covering Stages I and II, provides an illustration of how the data quality objectives (DQO) process is used to design an ambient air monitoring system that will be adequate for the intended use of the data. The two documents combined are intended to serve as a bridge between the Quality Assurance Management Staff's (QAMS') DQO guidance and an actual application of the DQO process at a Superfund site. The document illustrates the process of developing a monitoring system for volatile organic compounds in the ambient air to the point of submitting the design to the decision maker for approval.
