A study of the removal of selected priority pollutants from acid mine drainage was conducted at EPA's Crown, West Virginia, site. The pollutants studied were the volatiles benzene, chloroform, methylene chloride, tetrachloroethene, toluene, trans-dichloroethene; the semivolatiles bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate and di-n-butylphthalate; and the metals arsenic, selenium, antimony, mercury, chromium, copper, nickel, lead, and zinc. MRI's role in the study was to provide sampling and analysis support. Specifically, MRI acquired and prepared all sampling supplies; established a coding system to uniquely identify all samples; established a computerized data management system; validated an analytical protocol for the selected pollutants; received, documented and shipped samples from Crown to MRI; and analyzed samples.
