      This is the last WP study to be provided by the  USEPA;  consult
your state or regional WP coordinator for direction regarding future
WP studies.

      As  a participant in WP040, you are herein  provided sample
concentrates for one  or more of the following:  Inorganics Set 1,
Inorganics Set 2, Inorganics Set 3,  Inorganics Set 4,  Inorganics Set 5
and/or the Organics Set, according to the instructions given to us by
the state/regional official(s)  that nominated you for this study.  If
you did not get the ampuls  you  need,  please used the attached sample
replacement order form to obtain those samples.

      Inorganics  Set 1 includes:  demands and non-filterable  residue.
Inorganics Set 2 includes:  nutrients and oil and grease.  Inorganics
Set 3 includes:  trace metals #1 (aluminum, arsenic, cadmium,
chromium, cobalt, copper, iron,  lead,  manganese, mercury, nickel,
selenium, vanadium and zinc), cyanide and,total phenolics (phenols by
the 4AAP method).  Inorganics Set 4 includes:   pH and total residual
chlorine.  Inorganics Set 5 includes minerals and trace metals #2
(antimony, beryllium, molybdenum,  silver,  strontium, thallium and
titanium).

      Note: Ampuls  from Inorganics Sets  1,  2, 3  or 4 may also be
analyzed and reported to NPDES  permittees for DMR-QA Study 18
purposes; the labels  of these ampuls reference WP040 and DMR-QA Study
18.  See the pink instructions  if you need to report data to
permittees using the  enclosed pink "NPDES Chemistry Laboratory Data
Report Form."  DO NOT use the PINK forms to send data to the USEPA.

-------
      The Organics Set includes:  PCBs to be diluted in a water matrix,
PCBs  in transformer  oil,  chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides,  volatile
halocarbons and volatile  aromatics.   The  PCB samples  diluted in a
water matrix will  contain one  or more of  the Aroclors 1016/1242,  1232,
1248, 1254 or  1260.   The  PCB samples in transformer oil  will contain
one or  more of the Aroclors 1016/1242,  1254  or 1260 and  are  to  be
diluted with solvent and  directly injected on column.  Since 1016 and
1242  are so similar,  we do not require distinction between them.   The
analyst is expected  to identify and  measure  the Aroclors present.

      RESULTS FOR THIS STUDY ARE DUE IN CINCINNATI ON OR BEFORE
SEPTEMBER 15,  1998;   EVALUATION OF RESULTS RECEIVED AFTER THIS  DATE
CANNOT  BE GUARANTEED.  FOLLOW  THE GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR REPORTING
RESULTS, VERY CAREFULLY AND REPORT IN TERMS OF THE DILUTED, FULL-VOLUME
SAMPLES.  MAKE AS  MANY COPIES  OF THE REPORT  FORM AS YOU  NEED, ONE FOR
YOUR  RECORDS AND ONE FOR  EACH  COORDINATOR WITH AN INTEREST IN YOUR
PERFORMANCE  (SEE ATTACHED LIST*)  THEN SEND THE ORIGINAL  YELLOW  FORM
TO:

           Cincinnati, OH 45268

FACSIMILIE COPIES  OF DATA REPORT FORMS WILL  NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED.   IF
YOU DON'T HAVE TIME  FOR US MAIL SHIPMENT,  SEND YOUR DATA VIA OVERNIGHT
SXPJREgg SERVICE.

*     Check with your regional/state coordinator to determine if they
      want a  copy  of  this  data  for later follow-up on your performance,
      e.g., certification, etc.  It is your responsibility to provide
      this information to  them  or anyone else with an interest in your
      performance.

      IF THERE  ARE TECHNICAL QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS, CONTACT YOUR STATE
OR REGIONAL COORDINATOR (SEE ATTACHED  LIST).   TO ORDER REPLACEMENT
SAMPLES,  DO NOT CONTACT YOUR STATE OR  REGIONAL COORDINATOR,  BUT SUBMIT
THE ATTACHED REQUEST FORM AS DIRECTED.  YOUR USEPA ASSIGNED  LAB CODE
MST. BE INCLUDED IN  ALL REQUESTS  FOR SAMPLES (SEE LINE 1 OF  THE LABEL
ON PAGE 1 OF YOUR  DATA REPORT  FORM.

      We do not require copies  of the background information  that
relates  to the analytical  runs  from  which your study data were
developed.  However,  you  should retain this  information, such as  the
results  of related QA/QC  activities, records of  related  analytical
output,   etc.,  in your files for use  during your  own follow-up
investigation  to determine the  cause of any  unacceptable data.

-------
      Please  read  all  instructions carefully before beginning analyses.
A standardized set of instructions covering all analytes is enclosed.
Separate out the appropriate sample concentrates and instructions for
the analytes to be tested.  A separate sample is generally prepared
from each concentrate.  Analyze samples as directed in the specific
instructions for each group.  Report results for as many of the
analytes as your laboratory wishes evaluation or as directed by
whomever is requiring your participation.

      It  is important  to properly and  completely specify the analytical
method used.   If an appropriate method code is unavailable on the
instructions, i.e., a "99" is to be reported,  it is important to fully
identify the analytical method on a sheet added to the report form.

      Unneeded  sample  concentrates should be disposed  of properly or
reserved for later use as internal quality control samples.  For
disposal purposes, see the enclosure that generally describes the
contents of each ampul.  For those interested in use of the
concentrates as quality control samples, a list of true values and
limits may be obtained from your regional or state coordinator, or
through a communicating personal computer from the USEPA Office of
Research and Development Electronic Bulletin Board System, after study
results have been returned to the laboratories.  See attached
information regarding access to this system.

      Because the  National Water Quality Assurance Programs Branch
calculates all performance evaluation limits to three significant
digits, we recommend that results be reported to three significant
digits.
