COMPOSITE SAMPLE
A sample that is collected over time, formed either by continuous sampling or by mixing discrete samples. The sample may be composited either as a time composite sample, composed of discrete sample aliquot collected in one container at constant time intervals providing representative samples irrespective of stream flow; or as a flow-proportional composite sample, collected either as a constant sample volume at time intervals proportional to stream flow or collected by increasing the volume of each aliquot as the flow increases while maintaining a constant time interval between the aliquot.

(2) 
Contaminated — Water used for cooling purposes only which may become contaminated either through the use of water treatment chemicals used for corrosion inhibitors or biocides or by direct contact with process materials and/or wastewater.

Where daily maximum limitations are expressed in units of mass, the daily discharge is the total mass discharged over the course of the day. Where daily maximum limitations are expressed in terms of a concentration, the daily discharge is the arithmetic average measurement of the pollutant concentration derived from all measurements taken that day.
GRAB SAMPLE
An individual sample collected in less than 15 minutes, without regard for flow or time.

Monitoring points shall not be changed without notification and approval of the Superintendent of Public Works.
B. 
Flow measurements. If flow measurement is required by this permit, the appropriate flow measurement devices and methods consistent with approved scientific practices shall be selected and used to ensure the accuracy and reliability of measurements of the volume of monitored discharges. The devices shall be installed, calibrated and maintained to ensure that the accuracy of the measurements is consistent with the accepted capability of that type of device. Devices selected shall be capable of measuring flows with a maximum deviation of less than 10% from true discharge rates throughout the range of expected discharge volumes.
C. 
Analytical methods to demonstrate continued compliance. All sampling and analysis required by this permit shall be performed in accordance with the techniques prescribed in 40 CFR Part 136, and amendments thereto, otherwise approved by the EPA or as specified in this permit.
