The purpose of the study was to obtain information on biological treatability of the benzene, phenol, phthalate and ketone organics and of the Superfund CERCLA organics bearing wastes in wastewater treatment systems which will support development of an EPA technical guidance document on the discharge of the above organics to POTWs. The study was to generate basic information on the fate of CERCLA leachate organics during on-site treatment and biodegradation and inhibition data for pollutants found in Superfund site wastewater that could be discharged to POTWs. Respirometric biodegradability, biokinetic and inhibition data were generated for the selected RCRA benzene, phenolic, phthalate and ketone compounds.
