Preface:   
Description:Provides guidance on the sampling and investigation process for professionals engaged in these activities. Includes information which may be required to satisfy regulatory requirements. It lists the sequence of events for collecting sufficient and reliable information for the assessment of a potentially contaminated site. It includes the design of a sampling plan to meet the objectives of the investigation. This Standard does not establish any regulatory limits or remediation requirements for the proposed land use.
