    Significance and Use

    5.1 Although this practice is intended for the collection of soil samples from bare areas in and around buildings, this practice may also be used to collect soil samples from other areas and environments.

    5.2 This practice limits soil collection to approximately the top 1.5 cm (0.6 in.) of soil surface.

    5.3 These samples are collected in a manner that will permit subsequent digestion and determination of lead using laboratory analysis techniques such as Test Method E1613.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the collection of bare soil samples from areas around buildings and related structures using coring and scooping methods.

    1.2 This practice is not suitable for collection of soil samples from areas that are paved or otherwise covered with grass, mulch, or the like.

    1.3 This practice does not address the sampling design criteria (that is, sampling plan that includes the number and location of samples) that are used for risk assessment and other lead hazard activities.

    1.4 This practice contains notes that are explanatory and are not part of the mandatory requirements of this practice.

    1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
