8 1.0 INTRODUCTION This Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) has been prepared to accompany the Work Plans and Sampling and Analysis Plans being used in the data collection programs required in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Facility Investigation RFI program for the Surficial Media Operable Unit at Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL). These data are to essential to characterize the nature and extent of chemical contamination in the surficial media at SSFL, evaluate human and ecological risk, and gather data for the subsequent step of the RCRA Corrective Action Program; a Corrective Measures Study (CMS). The RCRA Corrective Action Program is under the regulatory oversight of the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal-EPA) Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC). This QAPP includes the quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedures to ensure that field and laboratory data quality and project work meet the data quality objectives (DQOs) for the intended data use of the surficial media sampling program at SSFL. Additionally, the objectives of this QAPP are to ensure the project work performed is in accordance with professional standards and regulatory guidelines as specified within project work plans submitted to DTSC for the Surficial Media Program. This document has been prepared with guidance from: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX, Guidance for Preparing Quality Assurance Project Plans for Superfund Remedial Projects, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA Region 9, Requirements for Quality Assurance Program Plan Guidance, Draft. R9QA/03.1, August U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Guidance on Systematic Planning Using the Data Quality Objectives Process, EPA QA/G-4, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA Guidance for Quality Assurance Project Plans, EPA/240/R-02/009, December U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA Requirements for Quality Assurance Project Plans, QA/R-5, EPA/240/B-01/003, March U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Data Quality Objective Process for Hazardous Waste Site Investigations, EPA QA/G-4, February 2006 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Systematic Planning: A Case Study for Hazardous Waste Site Investigations, EPA QA/CS-1,

9 Background and Purpose This QAPP incorporates the ever-green updates which have been made to the QA Program since the publication of the SSFL Quality Assurance Project Plan Addendum in (AMEC 2000). The 2000 QAPP Addendum was approved by DTSC and is the primary sampling and analysis guidance document for the RFI. However, additional laboratory analytical requirements have been published for the RFI in various work plans and reports submitted to DTSC for review and approval. DTSC has reviewed and approved some of these documents, while others are still within the DTSC review process. The purpose of this 2008 Surficial Media QAPP is to compile all QA requirements for the surficial media sampling program into a single document for ease of use by multiple contractors supporting the field and laboratory program at the SSFL. Thus, this document serves as a reference for previously published project QA requirements and provides an update to address additional requirements due to an expanded field program (i.e., naming conventions and data management). This QAPP is intended to give comprehensive QA/QC guidance for all methods and all associated analytes utilized for the surficial media RFI, and includes laboratory requirements published in project work plans and reports. The following table provides a list of project work plans and reports prepared and submitted to DTSC that describe laboratory and QA programs for various tasks for investigation of surficial media during the RFI, and that formed the basis of this document. A brief description of purpose and content is also provided, as well as review status by DTSC. These documents are not included herein, and the reader is referred to these specific documents for any site-specific application or implementation details. This 2008 Surficial Media QAPP will be updated as additional requirements are identified or specified by DTSC. 2

15 3.0 PROJECT OBJECTIVES The purpose of the RFI is to assess the nature and extent of chemical contamination in the surficial media at SSFL, to evaluate the risks to human and ecological receptors and to gather data to support the CMS. The surficial media operable unit is composed of soil, soil vapor, sediment, surface water, near-surface groundwater, air, biota, and weathered bedrock. 3.1 Problem Definition This plan has been prepared to prescribe sampling procedures, sample custody, analytical procedures, data reduction, validation and reporting, and personnel requirements to ensure that the data are of sufficient quality and quantity to adequately characterize the chemical impacts at SSFL and enable the assessment of risk to human health and the environment. A detailed description of each of the investigational activities is described in site- and task-specific RFI Work Plans and Sampling and Analysis Plans (SAPs). Primary objectives of the RFI Work Plans and SAPs include: Provide sufficient data to support ongoing surficial media assessment activities; Provide quality representation of the medium evaluated according to accuracy, precision, and completeness for both the field and analytical laboratory programs; Produce technical products of consistent quality through the formal standardization and documentation of field and laboratory techniques and activities. 8

16 4.0 DATA QUALITY OBJECTIVES (DQO) Data Quality Objectives (DQOs) prescribe the goals that ensure the data collected during surficial media sampling tasks are of adequate quality to comply with regulatory requirements by characterizing the nature and extent of contamination in the surficial media. DQOs are qualitative and quantitative statements derived from the outputs of each step of the investigative process. The DQO process is a series of planning steps based on the scientific method that is designed to ensure that the type, quantity and quality of environmental data used in decision making are appropriate for the intended application. The seven (7) steps of the DQO process include: 1. the statement of the problem; 2. the identification of the decision; 3. the identification of the inputs to the decision; 4. the definition of the boundaries of the study; 5. the development of the decision rule; 6. the specification of the limits on decision errors; and 7. the optimization of the design for obtaining data. The decision rules for the major RFI investigation activities are provided below. In general, chemical analyses to be completed, as a part of these investigation activities, will include target analyte list (TAL) parameter analyses, as listed in Table Surficial Media Sampling The problem statement for the RFI Surficial Media Operable Unit sampling program is: Comply with regulatory requirements by characterizing the nature and extent of contamination in surficial media (soil matrix, soil vapor, sediment, surface water, near-surface groundwater, air, biota, and weathered bedrock). Five decision questions were identified during the DQO process and are used to guide data collection and evaluation for the Surficial Media Operable Unit RFI. These five questions are: 1. Has historical information on chemical use areas and chemical releases been used to identify potential source areas? 2. Have source area sampling and analysis plans been developed to characterize the nature and extent of contamination? 3. Is the nature and extent of contamination at potential source areas within RFI sites characterized sufficiently for risk assessment? 4. Have potential human health and ecological impacts been assessed? 5. Have characterization and risk assessment results been used to make site action recommendations for the corrective measures study (CMS)? 9

17 The inputs to the decision for the soil investigation are data from previous and proposed investigations and the published Standardized Risk Assessment Methodology (SRAM) Work Plan, Santa Susana Field Laboratory, Venture County California, Revision 2 (MWH, 2005). The spatial boundaries for the soil investigation are the regulated unit boundaries, administrative areas at SSFL, RFI sites and adjacent drainages, adjacent open spaces and drainages, potential source areas within RFI sites and associated drainages for soil samples, near-surface groundwater, surface water, and sediment. The decision rules for the SSFL surficial media investigation include the following rules which are pertinent to the analytical program. 1. If chemical use in a potential source area is well defined, then targeted analytical suites will be used. 2. If chemical use in potential source areas is not well defined, then broader analytical suites will be based upon potential chemical releases. The full list of decision rules for the surficial media investigation can be found in the RFI Program Report, (MWH, 2004). The limits on decision errors for the surficial media investigation include the following: Type I decision error (false rejection error): Conclusion that soils are unimpacted, when in fact they are impacted. Decision is to limit further sampling and analysis based upon this information. Consequences involve possible underestimation of site risk and under-determination of extent of contamination. Type II decision error (false acceptance error): Conclude that soils are impacted, when in fact they are un-impacted. Decision is to complete additional sampling and analysis to define the extent of impact. Consequences involve the unnecessary expenditure of additional resources to conduct additional sampling and analyses. Optimization of the design for obtaining data include additional review of historical data sources, the ability to modify plans as new information becomes available and the ability to conduct additional sampling and analysis as the new information is evaluated to reduce overall uncertainties. Task-specific DQOs have also been prepared for specific areas, phases and actions of the investigation. Task-specific DQOs can be found in the RFI Program Report, (MWH 2004). Group-specific DQOs may be included in specific work plans. The QA objective for the surficial media sampling programs is that the resulting analytical data meet the criteria for precision, accuracy, representativeness, completeness and comparability established in this QAPP. The QA objectives will be met by following the standard operating procedures (SOP) included in the site-wide work plans [Work Plan Addendum (WPA) and Work Plan Addendum Amendment (WPAA) (Ogden 1996, 2000)] and site-specific work plans and field sampling plans and implementing the procedures outlined 10

18 in this QAPP. A summary of the SOPs to be used in the performance of the Surficial Media Sampling Program are provided in Table 4-1.

19 4.2 Field Measurements Field activities outlined in the work plans include screening measurement soil volatile organic compound content, field test kits to provide screening level measurements of organic and inorganic constituents, field water quality parameters (i.e., electrical conductivity (EC), ph, dissolved oxygen (DO), oxidation and reduction potential (ORP), temperature, turbidity), well discharge rates and static groundwater elevations. Field personnel will perform validation of all data obtained from field measurements by checking calibration procedures utilized in the field. Section 5 addresses QC measures that will be implemented for data validation and inspection of field measurement and analytical data. 4.3 Laboratory Analyses Surficial media samples will be collected and submitted for off-site laboratory analysis as part of the Surficial Media RFI Program. The DQO for analytical data provided by the laboratory will be expressed in terms of precision, accuracy, representativeness, completeness and comparability criteria presented in this QAPP. These DQOs will be achieved by a comparison of EPA method acceptance criteria and laboratory QC procedures. Laboratory analyses should meet the reporting limits (RL) as presented in Table
