Soil Vapor Port Installation
• Geoprobe drilling
• Insert Teflon-lined tubing
• Fill borehole with at least six inches of
sand surrounding the vapor sampling
implant
• Seal remaining depth of the borehole with
Bentonite
• The Bentonite seal must set for at least 24
hours before soil gas sampling can occur
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
Soil Vapor Port Installation
• Permanent Soil Gas Ports
– Well mount and swage lock
• Temporary Soil Gas Ports
– Excess tubing is plugged
• Sub slab vapor port installations

Soil Vapor Sampling Equipment
• Flow regulator
• SUMMA Canister
• Low flow pumps for purging soil vapor
ports and tubing

Soil Vapor Sampling QA/QC
• Collect field duplicates every 20 samples
• Helium Tracer Tests

Sampling Area Observations
• Penetrations on floors
• Stains from chemical spills
• Chemical containing products

Best Practices for Customizing
EQuIS
• Use staff knowledgeable in the EQuIS
database schema
• Prepare entity relationship diagrams and
object models to reflect current and
proposed database structure
• Work with EarthSoft to implement
database changes
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
Database and EDD Changes
• New tables replaced existing building and
task parameter tables to meet these needs
– Buildings can have multiple inspections on
different dates
– Parameter codes are associated with buildings
(subfacilities)
– Subfacilities can contain many buildings
– An outdoor sample can be assigned to
multiple buildings
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
Database and EDD Changes
• One outdoor sample for more than one
building.
