This unique new ASTM manual provides you with the tools you need to develop a sampling strategy to meet project objectives associated with RCRA waste management activities. Intended as a companion document to EPA SW-846, this Manual features the step-by-step process for completing a sampling investigation associated with data collection activities for waste identification purposes under RCRA. Included are standards that were jointly developed by several ASTM committees and EPA.
The manual also includes several appendices, one of which illustrates a practical waste pile example to clearly demonstrate the planning, implementation, and assessment process of a data collection activity. It examines five case studies with varying waste pile characteristics and alternate sampling designs. Four chapters cover: Introduction Sampling for Waste Management Activities: Planning Phase Sampling for Waste Management Activities: Implementation and Sampling for Waste Management Activities: Data Assessment Phase
Manual 42 serves as a valuable guide for: Engineers; Environmental Managers; Waste Managers; and Regulatory Staff
