Description This document delineates the Department of Ecology’s Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for manually obtaining representative grab samples from a variety of stormwater conveyance systems. This SOP covers the use of intermediate collection devices, but does not describe the operation of unattended automated sampling devices used to collect stormwater samples.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
