General Information
Event Name: Incremental-Composite Soil Sampling
Hosted By: U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Description:

Incremental-Composite Soil Sampling is a full-day course that focuses on the theory and application of ITRC’s Incremental Sampling Methodology (ISM), composite sampling designs, and hybrids of the two (Incremental-Composite Sampling, ICS). ICS hybrid designs are useful to address multiple project goals simultaneously. Since “representativeness” is a key aspect of data quality and ISM/ICS data are demonstrably more representative than most discrete data, it will be argued that ICS data are indeed “better” than non-ICS data. The course will answer questions such as:

  • What is the difference between ITRC’s ISM and EPA’s Incremental-Composite Sampling (ICS) strategies?
  • Is there written EPA guidance? What features should an ISM or ICS design have?
  • Can ICS give project risk assessors the data they want, while simultaneously meeting the RPM’s own data needs for characterization or remedial design?
  • How are background concentrations determined and comparisons to background handled using ICS?
  • How do we know whether ICS “worked” for the project?
