Quality Assurance Project Plans for the Hydraulic Fracturing Study Plan


A quality assurance project plan (QAPP) describes procedures that ensure that only valid data are generated and used in our study. The study's QAPPs are internal scientifically deliberative documents that describe the methods and quality assurance protocols.  It is an internal planning document prepared, reviewed, and approved by Agency technical and quality assurance experts. The QAPP may be updated throughout a project to document changes needed to the initial approach based on results obtained or observations made during the study. Current quality assurance plans for EPA's hydraulic fracturing study are posted below.
