Sampling Procedures Manua
Sampling Procedures Manual
The August 2005 edition of NJDEP’s Field Sampling Procedures
Manual replaces the 1992 edition as the most current technical
guidance associated with procedures and equipment utilized for the
collection of environmental samples. It also represents the first
edition published on the World Wide Web, which brings the benefit
of improved access to information for the public and regulated community.
The primary intent of the manual has always been to promote accuracy
and consistency when environmental samples are collected and prepared
for chemical analysis by public and private entities. The validity
of analytical data is directly dependent upon the integrity of the
field procedures employed to obtain a sample. The methods and procedures
described herein are intended for use by those State of New Jersey
regulatory agencies that require chemical, physical and certain
biological analysis of samples for remedial evaluation and monitoring
purposes. Since these methods are applicable to such a wide variety
of regulatory programs throughout the Department, any site and/or
regulatory specific questions/ issues regarding a particular sampling
technique must be discussed with the applicable program personnel
prior to going out into the field.
