Low Flow Sampling Best Practices

Presented on Wednesday, November 30, 2011

The primary goal of low flow purging is to obtain a sample that is representative of the surrounding groundwater. Misuse of equipment and lack of quality controls can skew data which can result in poorly collected samples. You will learn best practice techniques for low flow sampling that can improve the reliability, repeatability, and accuracy of your on-site readings in order to ensure good sample collection.
