In response to a need of the Effluent Guidelines Division of the U.S. EPA Office of Water Regulations and Standards, industrial wastewater survey sample extracts were analyzed for organic pollutants other than the Priority Pollutants. Chromatographic analyses were performed on capillary columns rather than the packed columns used in the original survey analysis to confirm compound identifications made by computer analysis of the packed column gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) data. A list of compound identifications for each industrial effluent extract to be analyzed was provided. Overall, 546 compounds were manually identified in the reanalysis of extracts. Of these, 433 were confirmed.
