    Abstract

    Ground water sampling and analysis are large efforts in terms of manpower and cost. The primary water contaminants from petroleum sources are the aromatic constituents due to their solubility in water. A commercially available field test kit (Hanby Analytical Laboratories, Inc.) was evaluated for application of on-site detection of low level contamination of water by aromatics. The results obtained using this kit are compared with those obtained in the laboratory using gas chromatographic methods.
