Abstract : The basic objective of this study was to recommend interim protocols for the laboratory validation of sample collection, handling and preservation methods during the installation restoration interim geohydrological pilot soil/water sampling program. The protocols were intended to incorporate methods of sample extraction, clean up and analysis. The scope of work originally stated to achieve the objectives of this study was divided into 4 general areas and was stated as follows: (1) review of literature on environmental fate and analytical technique; (2) recommended interim validation protocols; (3) validation of sampling, handling and preservation methodology; and (4) evaluation of pilot field procedures. The project evolved, as necessary, meeting the demands and capabilities of the material analysis laboratory division and the requirements of the interim geohydrological pilot program. (MM)
