Dear Listserv Subscriber:
We wanted to let you know about two items recently posted to our Technical Guidance page.
The first is the Cleanup Levels Comparison Spreadsheet which provides a side-by-side of the 2008 and 2016 cleanup levels for compounds in Tables B1 and C of 18 AAC 75.   The second is the Petroleum Mass Fraction Spreadsheet which may be used in Method 3 calculations for alternative petroleum cleanup levels.  Both documents are in Microsoft Excel and can be found under Screening & Establishing Cleanup Levels here:  http://dec.alaska.gov/spar/csp/guidance_forms/csguidance.htm.    The Petroleum Mass Fraction Spreadsheet is also posted on the right hand side of the Petroleum Cleanup Level Calculator page here:  http://dec.alaska.gov/applications/spar/webcalc/index.htm.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Best wishes for the holiday season,
