Casey EPH Fuel Tank Supply Line Leak - Soil samples for TPH analysisEntry ID: IHIS2684
Abstract: The dataset contains a list of the location of sixteen soil samples taken from the vicinity of the Casey EPH fuel tank on the 13/02/2012 and 20/03/2012. Soil samples were taken for Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) analysis and will be submitted to Analytical Services Tasmania for said analysis. The investigation is related to a leak detected from the threaded unions on the Casey EPH fuel tank ... supply line (refer to IHIS incident report 2684). Samples 100114 - 100120 were taken at selected locations within the recognisable spill area and down-gradient of the site on the 13/02/2012 by Dan Wilkins (Scientific Officer, Terrestrial and Nearshore Ecosystems, Science Branch.) Samples 99319-99332 were taken from a 5 m grid sampling pattern on the 20/03/2012 by Johan Mets (Plant Operator), acting under the direction of Dan Wilkins. Frozen conditions prevented samples being obtained from recommended depths (i.e. under the road base).
