Contaminant Profile: PAHs

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and for short, PAHs. Do you want the technical description of carbon chains and bonds or perhaps something more relevant? Let’s go with relevant and why they are even something that environmental consultants look for. For starters, PAHs comprise a group of compounds that are probably most commonly associated with the use of creosote as a wood preservative, which is most often seen with treated railroad ties and power poles.

Laboratory Submissions

Is your environmental consultant submitting soil/water samples for laboratory analyses following proper protocols?  Items to consider:

  1. Place one COC form per cooler to avoid confusion
  2. Don't mix samples with different COCs in each cooler
  3. Keep soil and water samples separated in different coolers
  4. Separate highly impated samples from clean samples
  5. Ensure labeling of samples is legible
  6. Fill out the entire COC with as much information as possible
  7. Keep samples cool using ice packs
  8. Submit samples within appropriate holding times
