The National Water Contaminants Characterization Research Program (now the Analytical Chemistry Branch) of the Southeast Environmental Research Laboratory identified and measured aquatic pollutants under eight projects in answer to requests for assistance. In most cases these analyses helped to solve, or at least to understand more clearly, the related pollution incident and in some cases provided evidence for enforcement of regulatory legislation. The cases briefly reported include: Terpenes in paper mill effluents and Mississippi River samples; organic components of pesticide plant effluents; organic compounds formed during chlorination of municipal waste sludge; organic components of dye plant effluent; organic and elemental components of coal-gasification pilot plant effluent; elemental analysis of Lake Ontario water; elemental analysis of patio debris; and elemental analysis of mineral processing plant wastes.
Prepared for National Environmental Research Center, Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under project 16020 GHZ, program element 1BA027. Includes bibliographical references (pages 29-30).
