Groundwater sampling: Technical guideline

Research output: Book/ReportReport (publicly available)


This technical guideline (TG) stipulates unambiguous instructions for the sampling, field analysis and submission of groundwater samples. The samples collected are a source of knowledge about the groundwater's chemical characteristics. Furthermore, the instruction serves to document the conditions under which groundwater monitoring is performed.

The EU directive on analysis quality in connection with groundwater monitoring – which supplements the Water Framework Directive, etc. (EU, 2009) – stipulates that field analyses must be performed to known standards and using a quality control system equivalent to the guidelines established in ISO 17025. The guidelines of this TG comply with the directive's field analysis requirements.
