Recommended for targeted testing for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and chlorinated pesticides in drinking water. PCBs are synthetic compounds that were widely used up until the 1960's in electrical equipment such, as capacitors and transformers–as well as in hydraulic fluids, lubricants, plasticizers, and pesticides. Due to their environmental toxicity, and classification as persistent organic pollutants, PCB production was banned in the US in 1978. They have been shown to be human endocrine disruptors. Along with an array of PCBs, the testing package also includes analysis of other persistent organochlorinated pesticides like DDT, aldrin, and lindane.

This Tap Score water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis of PCBs and organochlorine pesticides by EPA method 608 (or equivalent). 


PCBs and Chlorinated Pesticides Water Test

Is this the right test for you?


What our scientists say:

“ While PCBs have been banned in the US for decades, they can persist in the environment. Similarly, so too can organochlorine pesticides and insecticides like DDT, which can have devastating impacts, as famously described in Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. "


This is the right test if you:

    • Live near an area with heavy agricultural and farming activity.
    • Located near a golf course.
    • Served by a private or shared well.
    • Concerned about nearby industrial activity.
