Abstract : The Army Environmental Center (AEC) Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Division tasked Home Engineering Services, The. to perform data validation in support of ongoing Remedial Investigations/Feasibility Studies (RI(FS) at the Woodbridge Research Facility (WRF), Virginia. This plan presents how Home Engineering will perform data validation for WRF site. The project objective is to validate 100% of the WRF environmental analytical data to ensure that the data quality objectives described in the Quality Assurance (QA) Plan are met and that no Systematic errors exist within the data sets. All field blanks, trip blanks, and equipment rinse blanks will be checked by ICF Kaiser in accordance with Section 4.4 of WRF QA Plan. The validation effort will verify that the WRF environmental data (1) are of known quality, (2) are technically valid, (3) satisfy the project objectives, and (4) are useable for their intended purpose. The data validation process will perform the following: (a) Verify that no systematic errors exist within the data sets (b) Assess field quality control (QC) samples to determine if sampling has adversely impacted the reported results (c) Tabulate QC outliers used to assess both method and laboratory performance and determine the impact on the reported results (d) Provide measures of data quality in terms of precision, accuracy, and completeness 1.2 Site Information Woodbridge Research Facility - The types of samples collected at WRF site include sediment/soil, water, and tissues. Sediment/soil samples were analyzed for: Metals, Pesticide/Polychlorinated biphenyls (P/PCBs), Dioxins, Volatile Organic Carbons (VOCs), Semivolatile Organic Carbons (SVOCs), and Polychlorinated Terphenyls (PCT). Water samples were analyzed for Metals, VOCs, SVOCs, P/PCBs, and PCTs. Tissues were analyzed for Metals, P/PCBs, PCTs, and PAlls.
