  • GFA’s Environmental team collected 5-point composite samples from excavated soils using a stainless-steel hand auger. Samples were placed on wet ice and transported to a NECLAC-accredited laboratory for analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Total Recoverable Petroleum Hydrocarbons, and RCRA 8 Metals (arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, selenium, and silver). GFA prepared a soil sampling and analysis report summarizing the findings and necessary conclusions.
