|This Guidance Document is intended to assist permitted solid waste disposal areas in addressing the groundwater monitoring requirements of Title 132 – Integrated Solid Waste Management Regulations, Chapter 7, Ground Water Monitoring and Remedial Action. These requirements apply to all solid waste disposal areas accepting municipal solid waste, industrial waste, delisted waste and fossil fuel combustion ash.
The purpose of the Groundwater Monitoring Program for Permitted Solid Waste Disposal Areas is to establish a groundwater sampling and analysis protocol that can be followed throughout the monitoring period of the site (operating, closure, and post-closure) required under the Title 132 regulations. The protocol is necessary so that acquired data can be compared over time and accurately represent groundwater quality. Sample collection, preservation, shipment, storage, and analyses, should always be done in a consistent manner, even if monitoring staff change during the monitoring period.
