Petroleum Hydrocarbons and MTBE

We test your water sample for potential contamination with petroleum hydrocarbons (gasoline or diesel) and the fuel additive MTBE (methyl tert-butyl ether).

Standard constituents reported are: benzene, ethylbenzene, toluene, xylenes, (BTEX) and MTBE, total gasoline-range organics (GRO) and total diesel-range organics (DRO). BTEX are the most soluble components of petroleum products and the most likely to contaminate ground water. They are also the most toxic components. It is not unusual for some groundwaters to contain small amounts of GRO or DRO, but larger amounts could indicate a contamination problem.

With your prepaid order, we send you special sample bottles and instructions. You fill the bottle and return it to us for analysis.

We currently perform this analysis once each month. If faster results are needed, minimum order pricing may apply.
