(3) All samples must be analyzed by laboratories accredited pursuant to section 118.6 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) or, if no laboratory is accredited for the analysis of a given substance, by a laboratory that meets ISO/CEI 17025, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, published jointly by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission.
(4) The laboratory sends the results to the person responsible for the drilling site.
