The operator must keep records of all ground water sampling activities conducted, the sample analysis results, and the associated ground water surface elevation throughout the active life of the facility and throughout the post-closure care period as well. Such records must be kept at the facility or at some other location within Tennessee as specified in the permit.
(viii) All ground water sample analysis results with any statistical determinations and the associated recording of ground water surface elevations must be submitted to the Commissioner within sixty days of the sampling event. To facilitate handling and evaluation of this data, the Commissioner may specify the manner and form in which the data must be reported.
The owner or operator must determine whether or not there has been a statistically significant increase over background values for each parameter or constituent required in the required monitoring program in part 5 of this subparagraph. Comparison must be made of subsequent sample analysis results to background concentrations or values established using a statistical procedure selected which will at least meet the general performance standard of assuring with a reasonable degree of confidence that the migration of waste constituents from the facility into or through the uppermost aquifer at the compliance monitoring boundary will be detected.
Detection Monitoring Program
The operator must obtain and analyze samples from the installed ground water monitoring system in accordance with the ground water monitoring program established in the permit or as otherwise required by the
The statistical method shall account for data below the limit of detection with one or more statistical procedures that are protective of human health and the environment. Any practical quantitation limit (PQL) that is used in the statistical method shall be the lowest concentration level that can be reliably achieved within specified limits of precision and accuracy during routine laboratory operating conditions that are available to the facility.
If necessary, the statistical method shall include procedures to control or correct for seasonal and spatial variability as well as temporal correlation in the data.
