Sampling Do's and Don’ts - Water & Wastewater - John Lindsey, Account Executive, Pace Analytical Services LLC
The Safe Drinking Water Act (SWDA) was passed by Congress in 1974 to make sure that the drinking water supplied to the public is safe and sanitary. The SDWA has been amended since then and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) still writes the regulations to carry out the provisions of the Act. The major requirements of the SDWA include Sampling and Reporting, Record Keeping and Public Notification. Similar requirements are found in the Clean Water Act (CWA). Proper sample collection and reporting provides regulatory compliance and positive public relations for water and wastewater utility providers. In this presentation you will learn about:
-The types of analysis performed -The frequency of sampling
-Chain of Custody forms -General sampling procedures
-Sample Transport and deliver -Common collection mistakes to avoid
