Contamination of groundwater by organic chemicals such as pesticides, industrial solvents and petroleum products has emerged as one of the major environmental problems in the 1980’s. In the United States, public recognition of this problem has led to regional and national legislation restricting the use and disposal of many compounds, a practice which is likely to expand in the future as groundwater monitoring programs gather more information. Attention has also focused recently on atmospheric emissions of volatile compounds which are added to the soil, or released as incineration byproducts.
