What is Petroleum Contaminated Soil? ADEQ Arizona

Petroleum Contaminated Soil (PCS) is soil excavated for storage, treatment or disposal containing any of the following contaminants at or above non-residential soil remediation levels (SRLs): 1 benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, total xylenes, acenaphthylene, anthracene, benz(A)anthracene, benzo(A)pyrene, benzo(B)fluoranthene, benzo(K)fluoranthene, chrysene, dibenz(A,H)anthracene, fluoranthene

Petroleum Soil Science Society of America

Heating the contaminated soil until the petroleum hydrocarbons combust is another area of research. Scientists have researched specific plants that can help clean up contaminated sites. Using plants to clean soil is called phytoremediation. Many common prairie plants, like coneflower, survive large amounts of hydrocarbon contamination.
