A study of the transport and fate of organic pollutants in rivers has been initiated by the selection of a site for study from among seven candidates. Analysis was carried out on the water, suspended particulates and sediments at the selected site to assess the representativeness of the sampling procedures and determine a range of compounds suitable for the detailed transport and fate study. The selected compounds were mostly anthropogenic in origin and included several potential EC list 1 and related chemicals. Calculations were carried out to determine the analytical requirements for the detailed study and the proposed research programme is outlined.
