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.*

This presentation will provide case studies pertaining to surface and subsurface soil Multi-Increment Sampling (MIS) implemented during RD/RA. Examples will include delineation for characterization of contaminated soils above cleanup levels as well, evaluating potential background and anthropogenic contaminant sources, and sampling of potential borrow materials. A separate case study will discuss surface sediment sampling in a tidal marsh for use in human health and ecological risk assessment. The presentation will include discussion on DQOs, decision unit design, replicate sampling, field and lab sub-sampling modifications, and laboratory procurement.
Presenter: Josh Barber (USEPA Region 3)
