Abstract
An evaluation procedure was developed to rapidly screen chemicals for their potential to contaminate both subsurface and surface waters after disposal and subsequent release from landfills and lagoons. The procedure estimates movement and degradation of chemicals based on the physical and chemical properties of the compound and a defined range of environmental conditions that the compound potentially experiences in groundwater and in rivers, ponds, and reservoirs.
