Description Twenty-four sediment samples were analyzed for total petroleum hydrocarbons, with four of these being screened for 13 metals, cyanide, and 75 base/neutral/acid compounds. Detection of hydrocarbons matching oil leaking from the tire fire was limited to the three samples collected inside the inner containment boom (13.0 - 38.0 mg/Kg: parts per million) and one of four samples collected within the outer boom (2.0 mg/Kg).
