EPA Method 4030:
SOIL SCREENING FOR PETROLEUM HYDROCARBONS BY IMMUNOASSAY
Test kits are commercially available for this method. The manufacturer's directions should be followed.
Method 4030 is a procedure for screening soils to determine whether total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) are likely to be present. Depending on the testing product selected, samples may be used to locate samples with low (<40-100 ppm), medium, and high (>1000 ppm) concentrations of contaminates, or to determine if TPH is present at concentrations above 5, 25, 100, or 500 mg/kg. Method 4030 provides an estimate for the concentration of TPH by comparison against standards, and can be used to produce multiple results within an hour of sampling.
