Investigations at hazardous waste and environment-threatening spill sites inevitably require that on-site measurements and sampling activities be conducted in order to assess the type and extent of contamination present. Due to the nature of sites and materials under investigation, however, not all sampling and measurement procedures may be applicable. It is important, therefore, that personnel involved in hazardous waste investigations be aware of the sampling procedures and measurement techniques most suited to their needs. This document is dedicated to sampling procedures and information, its purpose being to present a compilation of methods and materials suitable to address most needs that arise during routine waste site and hazardous spill investigations. It is part of a multivolume manual entitled, Characterization of Hazardous Waste Sites - A Methods Manual, developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to serve a wide variety of users as a source of information, methods, materials and references on the subject.
