The report should indicate that samples were analyzed within accepted holding times. Trends in the data should be reviewed to determine whether they are intuitively reasonable. Laboratory detection limits should be reviewed for accordance with agreed limits, project objectives, and regulatory guidance. Quality assurance and quality control data also should be reviewed to verify that data are within acceptable limits. Any anomalies should be discussed with the laboratory. Depending on project objectives, more sophisticated data evaluation such as intercomparisons, data plots, regression analysis, and tests for fitness can be conducted to validate the data.

In addition to regulatory risk assessment protocols, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) has developed protocols for pub- 34 ENVIRONMENTAL SITE CHARACTERIZATION AND REMEDIATION DESIGN lie health assessments at National Priorities List and Superfund sites. These assessments can provide additional information associated with the potential human health impacts resulting from contaminated sites. More information about public health assessments and health hazard evaluations can be found in the ATSDR Public Health Assessment Guidance Manual (ATSDR1992).
