Quality Assurance Project Plan: Suitability of Leak Detection Technology for Use In Ethanol-Blended Fuel Service
McKernan, J., J. Enriquez, A. Dindal, AND S. Bessler. Quality Assurance Project Plan: Suitability of Leak Detection Technology for Use In Ethanol-Blended Fuel Service. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, 2013.
The purpose of the QAPP is to specify procedures for gathering data to inform the TA and the UST LD community as a whole.
Oversight of this investigation will be provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program. This project will be performed by Battelle, which manages the ETV Advanced Monitoring Systems (AMS) Center through a cooperative agreement with EPA. A draft Technology Assessment (TA) exists and data generated following the approved QAPP will be used to inform the revisions to and finalization of the TA, which is a deliverable associated with this project. The QAPP and TA will be approved by the EPA AMS Center Management. This testing is Quality Category II, which requires a QA review of 25% of the test data. An UST LD stakeholder committee was specifically assembled for the execution of this project, including the preparation and revision of this QAPP. The research described in the QAPP is focused on evaluating LD technologies in general to produce a TA that is not specific to a vendor or LD technology category.
