WACC-WTG Review Comment Sheets Page: 3 of 10


Finally, I suspect that the laboratories will not be able to maintain the 40 day reporting re-
quirement especially if one considers the number of laboratories, people, and data valida-
tion review cycles involved. I recommend that DOE change the requirement. I suggest that
DOE require the WTPP project groups to average less than 40 days for sample reporting.
DOE should require that a non-conformance report be generated for analyses taking longer
than 120 days or some other agreed upon time. The Plan should call for a summary of
problems in making measurements early in the program to adjust for problems. In this way
DOE will be able to focus on the real problems as opposed to problems such as key people
on vacation or having extended medical care. DOE should impose maximum holding times
for analyses of samples based on the suspected stability of the sample but not a 40 day
reporting period.
My specific comments are attached. Most of my comments concern the primary document
which appeared to be written with several key documents planned for but not completed.
Key documents are missing references implying they do not exist. The two appendices
were in excellent agreement with the requirements in the DOE plan.
I am forwarding my copy of the project plans to Jessie Donnan, the WSRC Waste
Analyses Manager, and to Moheb Khalil, the QA/QC Manager for the WSRC
Environmental Monitoring group. They will contact you directly with any comments they
might have. My review comments are being sent to you immediately before completing
the other WSRC reviews. Pleast contact me directly if you have questions. My number is
(803) 725-5256 or FTS 239-5251
