The trace organic removal efficiency for a rapid infiltration system is described. A broad spectrum monitoring of trace organics in the secondary sewage effluent applied to a rapid infiltration site is compared to a similar broad spectrum analysis of the groundwater beneath the site. Overall removal efficiency was about 92%. A chemical class breakdown of the organics yields removal efficiencies from 70 to 100%. The effects of groundwater dampening on concentration fluctuations was also treated over a 5-day period, showing very little difference over this time period.
