Revision of D5831-17 Standard Practice for Screening Fuels in Soils


D5831 appeared on a renewal ballot closing on September 19, 2022 where it received one negative. The negative stated “Section 1.1 Please rephrase ’... the concentration of the fuel can be performed.’
I do not think that concentrations are performed. Replace ’performed’ by ’calculated’, or ’determined’. The sentence in question now states, “If a sample of the contaminant fuel is available, the concentration of the fuel in the soil can be determined.”
This revision addresses the negative.
