Special samplers for Dissolved Oxygen (DO) sampling are available.

However, the
discrete sampler is adequate for DO samples. Sampling of shallow stream is not
advisable with this sampler; in such case, gently tilt the bottle downstream,
minimizing sample agitation (bubbling).
Other Points Requiring Attention Area
Sample where water is well mixed. Weirs enhance the settling of solids upstream
and accumulate floating solids and oil downstream, therefore, such location should
be avoided as a sample source.
Avoided large non-homogenous matter such as leaves, rags, twigs and other floating
material in the sample.
Sample facing upstream to avoid contamination by slowly drawing water from the
source into the container.
Force sampling container through the entire cross sanction of the stream, whenever
Ascertain that the sampler operates at the proper time before the sampling with a
depth sampler. If doubt exists, discard and resemble.
The schedules of the factory for waste discharges must be known in order to avoid
the sample from a batch dumping.
Provide complete information on the source and conditions under which the sample
was collected.
Attach a record tag on the sample container. The tag should contain information on
sample number source of sample, analysis required, temperature and name of
person taking the sample. The tag should be signed; time and date should be
recorded by the person taking the sample.
Field Measured Parameters
A number of parameters including pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, ammonia,
CO2, temperature, turbidity and residual chlorine should be measured at the
sampling site immediately after collection of sample. However in situ measurements
of these parameters are recommended.
