What is the sampling point to sample five heavy metals for indirect discharge without pretreatment facilities?
All sampling points relevant to all scenarios are mentioned here. In this scenario, five heavy metals should be tested in the untreated/raw wastewater.
The EDR mentions that these five heavy metals should be tested in the effluent (Column M, Sample Location Type, and Column N, Sample Location ID) instead of the untreated/raw wastewater due to a default setting which we hope to rectify soon. Until this is resolved please test the five heavy metals in the untreated/raw wastewater.
