Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are synthetic organic compounds; there are no natural sources of PCB is the environment. PCB remediation waste can result from a spill, release, or other unauthorized disposal of PCBs.
Incremental Sampling Methodology (ISM-1)
Section 9.1 (Case Study – PCB-Contaminated Landfill), pages 185-186; Appendix C.1, pages C-1 – C-13
These sections present a case study examining the application and comparative findings of incremental sampling methods to discrete sampling methods at a polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contaminated landfill.
Incremental Sampling Methodology (ISM-2)
Section 9.4.3 (Stakeholder Perspective)
Provides an example of a successful incremental sampling methodology (ISM) investigation about residential properties being impacted by a landfill and stakeholder involvement.
Section 1.3.3 (Phytoremediation Groundcovers)
Discusses the use of densely rooted groundcover plants and grasses used to phytoremediate contaminants.
Soil Background and Risk (SBR-1)
Section 7.4 (Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs))
Overview of PCBS, their chemical structure, types of Aroclors, congeners and amount chlorinated. Later sections of 7.4 go into analysis techniques.
Section 2.2 (Contaminant Types Treated Using S/S), Table 2-1
Provides information on how broad classes of inorganic and organic chemicals generally response to solidification/stabilization (S/S) treatment.
