TPH Water Testing CT

What Is TPH Testing?

Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) refers to a vast group of organic compounds commonly found in crude oil and its various refined products, such as gasoline, diesel, and lubricating oils. Petroleum hydrocarbons can be present in the environment due to natural occurrences, industrial activities, or accidental spills.

TPH Water Testing analyzes the total petroleum hydrocarbons present in a sample. It is often an essential component of compliance, risk assessment, and risk mitigation for a wide range of our clients in various industries throughout CT.

Until the mid-1980s, most underground storage tanks in Connecticut were made of bare steel, which is likely to corrode over time and allow contents to leak into the environment. Faulty installation or inadequate operating and maintenance procedures also can cause releases into the environment. Sources of petroleum hydrocarbons in the environment can arise from leaking underground storage tanks (USTs) and spills of gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation and other fuels. It is often important to understand the source of the petroleum hydrocarbons on a site .

Whether your petroleum water testing needs are driven by state regulations associated with a spill, a risk assessment or Superfund site, we can assist.
