Water Testing Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon Connecticut

Water Testing Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon Connecticut: Health effects from exposure to TPH depend on many factors. These include the types of chemical compounds in the TPH, how long the exposure lasts, and the amount of the chemicals contacted. Swallowing some petroleum products such as gasoline and kerosene causes irritation of the throat and stomach, central nervous system depression, difficulty breathing, and pneumonia.

Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon Water Testing ConnecticutWhat does the Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon Water Test determine?

Simply put, it is a test used to determine if a well is contaminated with fuel oils or like substances, including a broad family of several hundred chemical compounds that originally came from crude oil.

These chemicals are called hydrocarbons because almost all of them are made entirely from hydrogen and carbon. Crude oils can vary in how much of each chemical they contain, and so can the petroleum products that are made from crude oils. Most products that contain TPH will burn. Some are clear or light-colored liquids that evaporate easily, and others are thick, dark liquids or semisolids that do not evaporate.

Many of these products have characteristic gasoline, kerosene, or oily odors. Because modern society uses so many petroleum-based products (for example, gasoline, kerosene, fuel oil, mineral oil, and asphalt), contamination of the environment by them is potentially widespread. Because there are so many, it is not usually practical to measure each one individually. However, it is useful to measure the total amount of all hydrocarbons found together in a particular water sample.

The compounds in some TPH fractions can also affect the:

  • Blood
  • Immune system
  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Kidneys
  • Developing fetus
  • Lungs

Certain TPH compounds can be irritating to the skin and eyes. Other TPH compounds, such as some mineral oils, are not very toxic and are used in foods.

If you are exposed to TPH, many factors determine whether you’ll be harmed. These factors include the dose (how much), the duration (how long), and how you come in contact with it. You must also consider the other chemicals you’re exposed to and your age, sex, diet, family traits, lifestyle, and state of health.
