Einfeld, W. AND E N. Koglin. ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY VERIFICATION REPORT, GROUNDWATER SAMPLING TECHNOLOGIES, GEOPROBE INC., PNEUMATIC BLADDER PUMP GW 1400 SERIES. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-03/085 (NTIS PB2004-100359), 2003.
The objective of this task is to increase the acceptance and use of site characterization and monitoring technologies by providing verified performance data and reports on the performance of environmental monitoring and site characterization technologies.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) design efficient processes for conducting has created the Environmental Technology perfofl1lance tests of innovative technologies. Verification Program (E TV) to facilitate the deployment of innovative or improved environmental technologies through performance verification and dissemination of information. The goal of the E TV Program is to further environmental protection by accelerating the acceptance and use of improved and cost-effective technologies. E TV seeks to achieve this goal by providing high-quality , peer-reviewed data on technology perfofl1lance to those involved in the design, distribution, financing, permitting, purchase, and use of environmental technologies.
E TV works in partnership with recognized standards and testing organizations and stakeholder groups consisting of regulators, buyers, and vendor organizations, with the full participation of individual technology developers. The program evaluates the performance of innovative technologies by developing test plans that are responsive to the needs of stakeholders, conducting field or laboratory tests (as appropriate), collecting and analyzing data, and preparing peer-reviewed reports. All evaluations are conducted in accordance with rigorous quality, assurance (QA) protocols to ensure that data of known and adequate quality are generated and that the results are defensible.
