Groundwater monitoring standards


  • Anonymous


The Water Watch section in the September 20 issue of Eos described activities and accomplishments of standards Subcommittee D18.21 on Ground-Water Monitoring, part of the American Society for Testing and Materials Committee D18 on Soil and Rock. A typographical error provided the wrong publication number for the proceedings resulting from the symposium held in 1986 in Cocoa Beach, Fla. The publication should be listed as ASTM STP-963 “Ground-Water Contamination Field Methods.”

The ASTM Ground-Water Monitoring Subcommittee will meet, as will all its Sections and Task Groups, in Orlando, Fla., January 23–25, 1989, at the Walt Disney World Hilton Hotel. A number of draft standards will be discussed by the sections and Task groups in preparation for Subcommittee ballot. The meetings are open to anyone and there is no registration fee. Detailed schedules and hotel reservation information may be obtained by contacting Robert Morgan, ASTM, 1916 Race Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103; tel. 215-299- 5505.
