This innovative technology evaluation report (ITER) presents information on the demonstration of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 Superfund Field Analytical Screening Program (FASP) method for determining pentachlorophenol (PCP) contamination in soil and water. This method was demonstrated in Norrisville, North Carolina, in August 1993. The FASP PCP Method was developed by the EPA Superfund Branch for use at Superfund sites. The method uses a gas chromatograph (GC) equipped with a megabore capillary column and either a flame ionization detector (FID) or an electron capture detector (ECD). Gas chromatography is an EPA-approved method for determining PCP concentrations in soil, water, and waste samples. The FASP PCP Method is an abbrevaited, modified version of approved methods. Soil and water samples require extraction before GC analysis. To remove interferences caused by petroleum hydrocarbons, an acid-base partition cleanup step is used during the FASP PCP Method.
