This case study describes how a field analytical method was used to measure PCB surficial contamination in empty drums that were cleaned by a new process. DOE proposed and EPA approved a sampling program to determine the effectiveness of the clean-up technology and evaluate compliance with EPA's regulatory limits for releasing TSCA-regulated items. The proposed sampling program consisted of (1) statistical control limits for process monitoring, (2) random sampling of processed drums, (3) wipe sampling of container surfaces, and (4) rapid analysis of the wipe samples by a field method. During the trial period, the clean-up technology vendor attempted to clean about 20 of the most highly contaminated drums. Field analyses of residual PCB contamination, which provided results within one hour of wipe sample collection, showed that the clean-up technology was not working as expected.
