A laboratory column and field lysimeter study were conducted to evaluate the efficiency of soil core and soil-pore water samples to detect the migration of the organic components of land treated wastes through soil. In the laboratory, column leaching studies were performed by packing sieved soil into glass columns 35 cm x 4.6 I.D. The results from the laboratory column study were used to design the field lysimeter study. Large undisturbed monoliths of the Bastrop, Norwood, and Padina soils were collected and equipped with an underdrain system. Porous ceramic cups were installed at three depths in the monoliths. Soil core and soil-pore water samples collected periodically were monitored for eleven chemicals in the WPW amended soils, eight chemicals in the SRS amended soils, and nineteen chemicals in the API waste amended soils. The relative efficiencies of the two sampling methods were compared as a function of chemical structure and octanol-water partition coefficient.
