“The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine” a.k.a. Complying with Environmental Law, Testing, and Equipment
Environmental Attorneys have to review data on a daily basis, but few of us have observed how consultants physically obtain samples in the field, and maintain quality assurance protocols, for the data we review every day. During this outdoor interactive session, three consultants will show us the equipment they use to take soil, soil vapor and groundwater samples, and discuss the problems they typically encounter, and how they resolve those issues. In addition, the consultants covering the soil and groundwater environmental media will show us the different techniques they use for emerging contaminant sampling. A summary of the applicable sampling regulations and guidance documents will also be provided.
