MassDEP’s New Method for Analysis of Volatile Petroleum Hydrocarbons (VPH) by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) in Support of Response Actions under the MCP
When: Tuesday, February 28, 2017 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm
Location: Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, Central Regional Office, 8 New Bond Street, Worcester, Massachusetts
Space is limited and registration is required to attend the training. Register Here
MassDEP has recently published a new analytical method and associated CAM protocol (WSC-CAM-IV C) which can be used as an option for measuring volatile petroleum hydrocarbons (VPH) in aqueous and soil/sediment matrices. The method utilizes gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) to measure the collective concentrations of volatile aliphatic and aromatic petroleum hydrocarbons and the target analytes, benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, naphthalene, and MTBE. This method is known as MassDEP “VPH by GC/MS.”

Siting Renewable Energy on Contaminated Land in Massachusetts Workshop
- November 2012
MassDEP BWSC in conjunction with the LSPA hosted a six-hour workshop for LSPs titled "Siting Renewable Energy on Contaminated Land in Massachusetts." The workshop granted continuing education credits to the 160 LSPs and featured speakers from MassDEP 's Bureau of Waste Site Cleanup as well as its Clean Energy Results Program partners from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities. MassDEP's clean energy partners introduced LSPs to Massachusetts' renewable energy mandates, goals, incentives and interconnection standards involving solar photovoltaic installations. MassDEP staff focused on Massachusetts specific statutory and regulatory provisions commonly associated with siting renewable energy facilities on contaminated land. In addition, representatives from National Grid and Northeast Utilities/Western Massachusetts Electric along with MassDEP presented several case study examples of successful renewable energy developments on contaminated land in Massachusetts.
