SUPERFUND X-RAY FLUORESCENCE FIELD OPERATIONS GUIDE
U.S. EPA, Region 4 Superfund Division, Atlanta, GA. SFDGUID-001-R0, 23 pp, 19 Jul 2017

This guide was developed for consideration by Region 4 On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs) and Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) to provide the OSCs/RPMs with a methodology to collect defensible XRF data for lead and arsenic (and possibly other metals) in soil samples. The technical information provided for measuring concentrations of contaminants in soil in a practical, cost-effective, and timely manner does not constitute rulemaking by the Agency; the purpose of the guide is to aid in the collection of high-quality soil data for select contaminants that can be used in risk assessments. https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2018-04/documents/superfund-field-operations-guide-001-r0_xrf_fog_reg4.pdf
