(k)Total PCBs. A complete analysis for total PCBs, including, but not limited to, the arochlors listed in Appendix 405.D. Total PCBs must be analyzed for using methods in SW 846.
(l)Target pesticides. A complete analysis for target pesticides includes the pesticides listed in Appendix 405.D. These parameters must be analyzed for total concentrations using methods in SW 846.
(i)A complete analysis for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), also referred to as dioxin(s) and dioxin-like compounds. Sampling and analysis must be performed in accordance with EPA method 1613, EPA method 8290, or another Department-approved method.
(ii)toxic Equivalency Factors. The results of the residual analyses must be used to calculate total 2,3,7,8-TCDD equivalents using the Toxic Equivalency Factors (TEF) in Tables 405.1 and 405.2 , which indicate the relative toxicity of mixtures of dioxins, furans and dioxin-like compounds in relationship to the toxicity of 2,3,7,8-PCDD. To calculate the total 2,3,7,8-PCDD equivalents, multiply each detect by the corresponding TEF then add all results. Reported non-detects (ND) at the method detection limit will be considered equal to 0. The TEFs from Table 405.2 will be used to determine compliance with the dioxin standard in Chapter 419 of these rules. Both calculations must be reported to the Department.
