Sampling Procedures, Pitfalls, and Potential Risks


Sampling results often determine the fate of our wastes and materials, so it’s important to get it right the first time around. From selecting sampling locations and the number of samples, to deciding what to test for, sampling for anything Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) related is no easy task.

Join returning speaker Jennifer Hildebrand, MBA, CPESC, CPSWQ, CESSWI, for the fourth session of our MS4 Compliance Webinar Series: Where We Are & Where We’re Headed as we explore MS4-related sampling procedures and related pitfalls, including best practices for collecting representative samples, isolating illicit discharges, and managing street sweeping.

Specifically, this live and on-demand training webinar will walk through quality control of routine sampling needs for pond sediment, dry weather screening, and street sweepings. Within this discussion, we’ll overview sampling procedures and point out pitfalls and risks for each focus area.
