EPA Releases Guidance for Sampling and Field Testing During Water Contamination Incidents

To aid drinking water utilities in preparing for sampling and field testing that could occur during water contamination incidents, EPA released Guidance for Building Field Capabilities to Respond to Drinking Water Contamination.  The guidance outlines basic and advanced field response activities and also provides information pertaining to staffing, quality assurance, and other procedures.  Additionally, the document contains useful resources; downloadable and customizable report forms and templates;  supplemental information on the application;  and relative costs of field testing instrumentation and test kits.
