The proposed project is essentially in four parts:
• Sampling, including some basic on-site physico-chemical measurements, and transport to a competent laboratory/laboratories of water samples from 24 locations on a monthly basis;
• Analysis of the samples for:
– a set list of substances using targeted screening methods, and
– other potential non-prescriptive substances using non-targeted screening methods.
• Reporting of the analysis to the EPA within 25 working days of sampling;
• Preparation of a final report summarising the results of the analysis and a statistical analysis and interpretation of all results in the context of identifying those that are most prevelant.
