The behavior of a variety of organic contaminants having low molecular weight has been observed during groundwater recharge with reclaimed water. The evidence is site-specific, but is believed to have broader implications regarding the general behavior of organic contaminants in groundwater. The movement of specific contaminants such as chloroform and chlorobenzene is retarded with respect to that of a conservative tracer such as chloride. The measured retardation factors are approximately 3 and 35 for chloroform and chlorobenzene, respectively. The retardation is caused by the sorption of the solute, apparently by the organic constitutents of the soil material. (Copyright (c) Elsevier Scientific Publishing Company 1981.)
