US EPA - Region III Brownfields Site-Specific Sampling and Analysis Plan Template

This EPA Brownfields Site-Specific Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP) Template is a generic format to be used for generating a SAP for EPA Brownfields pilot projects in Region III.  Prior to environmental data collection for a Brownfields project, a Phase I report and a site-specific Sampling and Analysis Plan must be submitted to EPA Region III for review and approval.  This template is not to be used as a project planning tool for performing Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) investigations.

The technical specifications in this SAP Template do not supercede state, local and/or site-specific Applicable, Relevant and Appropriate Requirements (ARARs).  

This document has been derived from the US EPA Quality Assurance Guidance for Conducting Brownfields Site Assessments, EPA Region 2 Brownfields Project Planning Guidance and US EPA QA/R-5: EPA Requirements for Quality Assurance Project Plans.
