Detailed Description

Melinda Chapman and Sharon Fitzgerald discuss the U.S. Geological Survey quality control and quality assurance for the USGS groundwater sampling program to characterize water-suppy well water quality in the area of North Carolina with potential for shale gas production. The sampling program is designed to provide a pre-devolpment baseline that can be compared with well-water quality after shale gas development has occurred to assess any impacts on water quality.
