Welcome Letter from the Branch Chief

OFFICE OF
SOLID WASTE AND EMERGENCY
RESPONSE

Dear Data User:

We are pleased to present you with information about Superfund's Analytical Services. The Analytical Services Branch is responsible for managing the Contract Laboratory Program (CLP) for routine analytical services; developing new analytical services for other analyses such as dioxin and asbestos; providing quality assurance services for CLP and non-CLP data; developing and maintaining information technology (IT) tools for CLP and non-CLP data; and promoting field analytics and direct push technologies for sampling.

The CLP provides data of known and documented quality to its customers. This Web site is continuously updated to reflect our latest Statements of Work for organic and inorganic analyses.

CLP analytical data is used to demonstrate the nature and extent of contamination at hazardous waste and Brownfields sites, assess priorities for response based on risks to human health and the environment, establish appropriate cleanup actions, and determine when remedial actions are complete. Each CLP sample is properly documented to ensure timely, accurate, and complete analysis for all parameters requested, and to support the use of sample data in potential enforcement actions.

Thank you for your interest in Superfund Analytical Services. We hope this Web site is useful to you. If you have any suggestions for improvements to Superfund's Analytical Services, please call Lucinda Taylor at (703) 603-8818 or myself at (703) 603-8808.

Sincerely,
Melanie Hoff, Chief
Analytical Services Branch
