SAMPLING GROUNDWATER FOR HYDROGEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS
1. Purpose and objectives
Advice on the selection of sites and on field and analytical
procedures for groundwater quality investigations.
The success of groundwater quality investigations depends critically on a number of factors such as site selection, sampling procedures, and analysis techniques. Careful attention to these factors is needed to ensure that the results obtained are representative of the hydrogeological conditions, and fully comparable with each other. This component gives advice to groundwater hydrologists on these matters.
The topics covered include: site selection, pumping procedures,
obtaining samples, and analyses to be carried out. Descriptions are given
of the investigations which are necessary for the evaluation of the
