General Information
Event Name: Monthly Incremental Sampling Subcommittee Virtual Training
Topic: VOCs and PFAS Incremental Sampling in Michigan
Hosted By: U.S. EPA, Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
through the Technical Support Project's Engineering Forum
Event Description:

Incremental sampling is an unbiased, structured soil sampling protocol that reduces data variability and increases sample representativeness. It accomplishes this through careful up-front planning that defines what the soil samples are intended to represent, and through use of specialized sample collection and processing procedures in both the field and laboratory.

The Incremental Sampling Subcommittee was established in 2017 as a special focus workgroup within the Engineering Forum, one of the EPA Technical Support Project’s (TSP) three technical forums. The primary objectives of the Incremental Sampling Subcommittee are to: 1.) establish a national incremental sampling community of practice, 2.) develop incremental sampling expertise in every EPA Region , 3.) Educate state and federal environmental professionals, and 4.) provide information on current and new incremental sampling topics and procedures.

Presentations are specifically designed for EPA staff including RPMs, OSCs, Corrective Action Managers, Superfund and Technology Liaisons, Chemists, Biologists, Physical Scientists, and Engineers from within EPA regions, program offices, laboratory system, and headquarters personnel as well as environmental professionals from state agencies, tribes, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Dept. of Energy, and other federal agencies of all experience levels. THIS TRAINING IS NOT OPEN TO ACADEMIA, CONTRACTORS, CONSULTANTS OR OTHER PRIVATE ENTITIES.

We will try to meet any special accommodations necessary for our participants as possible if given a minimum two week notice. You will be prompted to indicate if you need any special accommodations upon registering for these events.

*This training is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend. One CLP will be issued for each session attended when you register and log on with the registration link provided to enable your attendance to be confirmed.*

Additional Information:

Please join Chris Christensen and Paul Knoerr, Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (MI EGLE) for a presentation on the use of incremental sampling to characterize volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in soil at sites in Michigan. A technical resource for incremental sampling methodology and applications developed by the state of Michigan is included in the Attachments.

Presenters: Christen Christensen, Geologist, Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (MI EGLE) and Paul Knoerr, Geologist, MI EGLE
