  • Field Measurement of Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) (PDF)(22 pp, 914 K, 04/26/2017, SESDPROC-113-R2)
    This document describes procedures, methods and considerations to be used and observed when conducting field Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) measurements in aqueous environmental media, including groundwater, surface water and certain wastewater. The measurement of soil ORP is a non-standard measurement and procedures should be developed on a project-specific basis.
