Analytes within 70% of the MCL levels may be the subject to the resampling at the Authority's discretion.

PCS's must be tested at a non-detect level down to 50 PPM. (This detection level needs to be brought to the attention the lab performing the analysis as the lab may not be able to test down to the 50 PPM level).

A full TCLP analysis needs to be repeated on an annual basis for Municipal & Industrial sludges. Another full TLCP analysis will need to be repeated for Industrial sludges if the process changes anytime during the year.

The lab analysis needs to be done by an "ELAP" certified lab. The "ELAP" number should appear on the analysis report. The sample Number, location of waste and date should appear on each page per the NYS DOH ELAP certification manual.

Herbicides & Pesticides testing may be waived from Industrial Sludges upon request.
