Over its lifespan, this refinery used over a hundred chemical compounds. Why are only 30 of these sampled for on site? What is the rationale for not sampling the others?

The current analyte list utilized for the Act 2 program at the facility was developed after analyzing historic reports and data from previous sampling efforts and in consideration of historic use of the site and the DEP analyte ‘short lists’ for various petroleum products.  Evergreen’s current analyte list includes compounds indicative of the various petroleum products processed at the facility.  In addition, both soil and groundwater samples from areas of the facility which historically stored and processed crude were sampled for a more comprehensive analyte list as part of the remedial investigation activities.  These data have all been included in the RIRs.
