STRATEGIC SAMPLING APPROACHES TECHNICAL GUIDE
EPA 542-F-18-005, 26 pp, 2018

The purpose of this technical guide is to assist environmental professionals in identifying where strategic sampling approaches might benefit data collection activities at a site and what sampling approach might be most effective given site conditions. Section 1 of this guide defines the concept of strategic sampling approaches; describes the benefits of applying them; and explores opportunities for leveraging strategic sampling approaches during various phases of the project life cycle. Section 2 describes eight strategic sampling approaches that can be used to improve the effectiveness of data collection activities. EPA recognizes that other sampling approaches may be developed and has designed this technical guide to allow for the inclusion of new approaches as they are developed. https://semspub.epa.gov/src/document/11/100001800
