Packaging Requirements:
Wipe outside of container clean using a damp, then dry cloth. Wrap containers with bubble wrap. Place in gallon plastic (polypropylene or polyethylene) bag with zipper lock and durability to resist punctures, then into metal can before placing in cooler.

Pack sample transport containers outside the contaminated area. Samples must be packed in a manner that protects the integrity of the samples and provides temperature conditions required for sample preservation. Samples should be surrounded by shock- and water-absorbent packing materials or ice (if required for preservation) and shipped in a cooler to ensure sample temperatures do not exceed preservation requirements. If the target analytes are unknown, samples should be maintained at ≤ 6°C, but above freezing. Ice should be placed in separate plastic bags or cold packs should be used to avoid leakage, and the bags placed around, among, and on top of the sample containers.  
Shipping Label:
Consult laboratory and/or shipping vendor on specifics regarding shipping label. Wipe outer surface of package with a bleach wipe, taking care not to obscure labeling.  
Notes:
Environmental samples are shipped as nonhazardous cargo if they do not exhibit one of the following U.S. DOT hazard classes: explosive, corrosive, flammable, or poisonous. Only a standard shipping carrier's label is needed in these cases. If any sample is listed under one of these classes, DOT labeling is required. The DOT label must indicate, PSN (49 CFR 172.301), the UN Number (49 CFR 172.301), appropriate hazard class and descriptor (49 CFR 172.101), and "Limited Quantity" when a quantity exception is used (49 CFR 172.101). When the quantity limit for a given substance is exceeded, the phrase "Limited Quantity" should be excluded from the label. Note that there are no "exceptions" for substances belonging to DOT Division 1.1, Division 2.1, Division 2.3 or Division 4.2. Exception quantities include:
• Exception for Class 3, flammable and combustible liquids: Ensure total net quantity of Class 3 substances does not exceed 1 L (0.3 gal) (49 CFR 173.150)

Sample Container:
Amber glass or fluoropolymer container with fluoropolymer-lined septum or lid 

Use of "certified clean" containers is preferred. Otherwise, use glassware cleaning instructions found in Chapter 3 of SW-846. Rinse with detergent, followed by tap water, 1:1 nitric acid:tap water, 1:1 hydrochloric acid:tap water, and reagent water. Prior to use, wash vials and septa with detergent and rinse with tap and distilled water. Allow the vials and septa to air dry at room temperature, place in a 105°C oven for 1 hr, then remove and allow to cool in an area known to be free of organics. 
Holding Time:
7 days 
Preservation:
• Add sodium thiosulfate to remove residual chlorine from treated water samples [Sodium thiosulfate can be added either prior to or after sample collection, but before sample preservation. An amount equivalent to the following is recommended: 3 mg/40-mL sample, or 3 mg/5 mg chlorine residual.]

• Cool to ≤ 6°C; keep from freezing  
Packaging Requirements:
Wipe outside of container clean using a damp, then dry cloth. Seal the container with non-reactive tape or film (e.g., fluoropolymer-based).  Wrap glass containers with bubble wrap.  

Pack sample transport containers outside the contaminated area. Samples must be packed in a manner that protects the integrity of the samples and provides temperature conditions required for sample preservation. Samples should be surrounded by shock- and water-absorbent packing materials or ice (if required for preservation) and shipped in a cooler to ensure sample temperatures do not exceed preservation requirements. If the target analytes are unknown, samples should be maintained at ≤ 6°C, but above freezing. Ice should be placed in separate plastic bags or cold packs should be used to avoid leakage, and the bags placed around, among, and on top of the sample containers.  
Shipping Label:

[Tier I]
Sample Type:
Non-Drinking Water
Sample Size:
125 mL
Sample Container:
Fluoropolymer, plastic or glass container

Use of "certified clean" containers is preferred. Otherwise, use glassware cleaning instructions found in Chapter 3 of SW-846. Rinse with detergent, followed by tap water, 1:1 nitric acid:tap water, 1:1 hydrochloric acid:tap water, and reagent water. 
Holding Time:
6 months with acidification. Samples must be acidified within 14 days of collection. 
Preservation:
• Acidify to pH < 2 with HNO3
• Cool to ≤ 6°C; keep from freezing

If sample collectors are not able to  preserve samples in the field (e.g., acid preservatives are not available), the samples may be preserved in the laboratory. If preserved in the laboratory, however, samples must be held for at least 24 hours prior to analysis.
Packaging Requirements:
Wipe outside of container clean using a damp, then dry cloth. Seal the container with non-reactive tape or film (e.g., fluoropolymer-based). Wrap glass containers with bubble wrap.

Pack sample transport containers outside the contaminated area. Samples must be packed in a manner that protects the integrity of the samples and provides temperature conditions required for sample preservation. Samples should be surrounded by shock- and water-absorbent packing materials or ice (if required for preservation) and shipped in a cooler to ensure sample temperatures do not exceed preservation requirements. If the target analytes are unknown, samples should be maintained at ≤ 6°C, but above freezing. Ice should be placed in separate plastic bags or cold packs should be used to avoid leakage, and the bags placed around, among, and on top of the sample containers.

If the target analytes are unknown, samples should be maintained at ≤ 6°C, but above freezing. Ice should be placed in separate plastic bags or cold packs should be used to avoid leakage, and the bags placed around, among, and on top of the sample containers.  
Shipping Label:
Consult laboratory and/or shipping vendor on specifics regarding shipping label. Wipe outer surface of package with a bleach wipe, taking care not to obscure labeling.  
Notes:
Environmental samples are shipped as nonhazardous cargo if they do not exhibit one of the following U.S. DOT hazard classes: explosive, corrosive, flammable, or poisonous. Only a standard shipping carrier's label is needed in these cases. If any sample is listed under one of these classes, DOT labeling is required. The DOT label must indicate, PSN (49 CFR 172.301), the UN Number (49 CFR 172.301), appropriate hazard class and descriptor (49 CFR 172.101), and "Limited Quantity" when a quantity exception is used (49 CFR 172.101). When the quantity limit for a given substance is exceeded, the phrase "Limited Quantity" should be excluded from the label. Note that there are no "exceptions" for substances belonging to DOT Division 1.1, Division 2.1, Division 2.3 or Division 4.2. Exception quantities include:
• Exception for Class 3, flammable and combustible liquids: Ensure total net quantity of Class 3 substances does not exceed 1 L (0.3 gal) (49 CFR 173.150)

The DOT label must indicate, PSN (49 CFR 172.301), the UN Number (49 CFR 172.301), appropriate hazard class and descriptor (49 CFR 172.101), and "Limited Quantity" when a quantity exception is used (49 CFR 172.101). When the quantity limit for a given substance is exceeded, the phrase "Limited Quantity" should be excluded from the label. Note that there are no "exceptions" for substances belonging to DOT Division 1.1, Division 2.1, Division 2.3 or Division 4.2. Exception quantities include:
• Exception for Class 3, flammable and combustible liquids: Ensure total net quantity of Class 3 substances does not exceed 1 L (0.3 gal) (49 CFR 173.150)
• Exception for Division 5.1, oxidizers and Class 9, miscellaneous hazardous materials (see 49 CFR 173.127 for packing group definitions), Packing group II: Ensure the total net quantity does not exceed 1.0 L (0.3 gallons) of liquid or 1.0 kg (2.2 lbs) of solid (49 CFR 173.152); Packing group III: Ensure the total net quantity does not exceed 5 L (1.3 gallons) of liquid or 5.0 kg (11 lbs) of solid (49 CFR 173.152)
• Exception for Division 6.1, poisonous liquids: Ensure the total net quantity of Class 6.1 liquids does not exceed 4 L (1 gal) of liquid or 5 kg (11 lbs) of solid (49 CFR 173.153)
• Exception for Class 8, corrosive materials: Ensure total net quantity of Class 8 materials does not exceed 5 L (1.3 gal) of liquid or 5 kg (11 lbs) of solid (49 CFR 173.154)
• Shipment of samples containing reactive levels (>12%) of energetic material residues using domestic carriers is prohibited. If samples are known or suspected to contain >12% of energetic material residues, ship and label according to DOT requirements for secondary explosive materials.
 
Analyte:
Cyanide, Amenable to chlorination
SAM 2017 Method(s)
3135.2I (EPA Regional Lab)
[Tier III]
Sample Type:
Wipes
Sample Size:
1 wipe/100 cm2 or 1 wipe/ft2

Wipe areas may need to be adjusted based on anticipated analyte concentration. Wipe sample areas are based on U.S. Office of Research and Development, "A Literature Review of Wipe Sampling Methods for Chemical Warfare Agents and Toxic Industrial Chemicals," EPA/600/R-07/004 January 2007.
Sample Container:
Wide-mouth glass or polyethylene container

Use of "certified clean" containers is preferred. Otherwise, use glassware cleaning instructions found in Chapter 3 of SW-846. Rinse with detergent, followed by tap water, 1:1 nitric acid:tap water, 1:1 hydrochloric acid:tap water, and reagent water.
Holding Time:
14 days
Preservation:
Cool to ≤ 6°C 
Packaging Requirements:
Wipe outside of container clean using a damp, then dry cloth. Seal the container with non-reactive tape or film (e.g., fluoropolymer-based). Wrap glass containers with bubble wrap. 
Pack sample transport containers outside the contaminated area. Samples must be packed in a manner that protects the integrity of the samples and provides temperature conditions required for sample preservation. Samples should be surrounded by shock- and water-absorbent packing materials or ice (if required for preservation) and shipped in a cooler to ensure sample temperatures do not exceed preservation requirements. If the target analytes are unknown, samples should be maintained at ≤ 6°C, but above freezing. Ice should be placed in separate plastic bags or cold packs should be used to avoid leakage, and the bags placed around, among, and on top of the sample containers.  
Shipping Label:
Standard carrier shipping label AND Cyanide inorganic solid n.o.s, 6.1, Poison, UN1588
