Quality Assurance and Monitoring Procedures for Surface Water Quality Monitoring
Quality Assurance Documents
Surface water quality projects involving the generation, acquisition, and use of environmental data are planned through the development of Quality Assurance Project Plans (QAPPs) or other planning documents. These documents are developed by project managers, quality assurance staff, technical staff, management, and contractors using a systematic planning process.
