Site Check Report Guidelines
Instructions:
The Site Check Report (SCR) is due within thirty (30) calendar days after the Responsible Party has been
directed by the Division to begin an investigation or thirty (30) calendar days after the work has been completed
when attempting to reestablish fund eligibility in accordance with Technical Guidance Document - 013 Fund
Eligibility Site Check.
The SCR shall contain all data gathered during field activities.
Environmental
assessment activities and evaluation of the subsurface investigation shall be directed by a registered professional
geologist under the Tennessee Geologist Act (T.C.A. §62-36-101 et seq.), or a registered professional engineer
under the Tennessee Architects, Engineers, Landscape Architects, and Interior Designers Law and Rules (T.C.A.
§62-2-101 et seq.).
If the SCR has not been submitted by the established deadline, a written request, justifying an extension shall be
submitted to the appropriate field office by the deadline. The extension is not automatic and enforcement
actions may be taken to insure prompt compliance with established deadlines. Failure to meet established
deadlines may place the responsible party out of substantial compliance and may result in the loss of fund
coverage.
Each section of the SCR shall be prepared and assembled in the order presented within these guidelines. Text
shall be provided explaining the associated tables and maps. All maps and tables shall be in the appropriate
section, not in appendices. All maps shall be on 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 17 inch paper and contain at a minimum a
north arrow, legend, scale bar, and figure number. These guidelines are intended to provide a structured outline.
Any information that is not specifically requested but is relevant to the project shall also be included. The
preparer shall assemble the required information in each section so as to provide a comprehensive final
document. All pages of the report, including the tables and figures, shall be consecutively numbered. Each
section and subsection heading shall be clearly printed in the report. A table of contents shall be provided
listing the location of all sections, maps, tables, and appendices.
All correspondence, reports, laboratory analysis sheets, etc. shall contain the TN UST Facility ID Number. A
copy of all correspondence and reports shall be submitted to the UST central office and the appropriate field
office.
Photostatic copies of the laboratory analysis sheets are not acceptable unless the originals have
previously been submitted in another report.

A.
Site Location
1.
Provide a vicinity map showing the site location including all streets, buildings, subsurface
structures and utilities within one-tenth (0.1) mile from the site.
2.
Provide a scaled site map including tank line, and dispenser locations, underground utilities, soil
borings and monitoring wells, etc. Indicate former tank systems with a dashed line.
B.
Soil Investigation
1.
Soil Boring Results
a.
If TGD - 012 or TGD - 013 were not used to conduct the site check, describe the
rationale in selecting all soil sampling points. (Note: The sampling locations shall be
where contamination is most likely to be present.)
b.
Describe the methods used to drill and sample all soil borings.
c.
Provide detailed boring logs in accordance with TGD - 006 Standard Drilling Log, in an
appendix. If TGD - 013 Fund Eligibility Site Check is being performed it is not
necessary to provide the boring logs.
2.
Analytical Results
a.
Provide all soil analytical results in a table containing the following information:
i.
Boring number or location of additional sampling points;
ii.
Date sample was collected;
iii.

and TPH); and,
v.
Unit of measurement (Parts Per Million, PPM).
b.
Provide all laboratory analysis and chain of custody sheets in an appendix.
All
laboratory analysis sheets shall include the following, at a minimum:
i.
The TN UST Facility ID Number;
ii.
Boring number or location of additional sampling points;
iii.
Date sample was collected;
iv.
Date sample analyzed;
v.
Sample depth;

previously been submitted in another report.
3.
Soil Contaminant Map
2
August 1996
Provide two (2) scaled plan view maps, one showing the horizontal extent of benzene
contamination and the other map showing the horizontal extent of TPH contamination. Include
the location of tanks, product and vent lines, dispensers, underground utilities, soil borings and
monitoring wells (properly labeled and including soil contaminant concentrations), etc. Indicate
former tank systems with a dashed line.
C.
Ground Water Investigation
1.
Provide a water level table containing the following, at a minimum:

e.
Depth from top of casing to free product;
f.
Depth from top of casing to water;
g.
Thickness of free product;
h.
Potentiometric surface elevation relative to MSL; and,
i.
Adjusted potentiometric surface elevation relative to MSL.
2.
Monitoring Well Construction
a.
If TGD-012 or TGD-013 were not used to conduct the site check, describe the rationale
in selecting all ground water sampling points. The sampling locations shall be where
contamination is most likely to be present.
b.
Describe the monitoring well installation procedures.
3.
Well Development
Describe the procedures used to develop all monitoring well(s). Provide a description of how
the development water was managed.
