Organic compounds leached into ground water from a landfill containing refuse deposited below or near the water table were investigated. Ground water from wells within or near the landfill and a control well was sampled by modified low-flow carbon adsorption procedures incorporating all glass-teflon systems to preclude introduction of extraneous organics. Column chromatography, solubility separation, and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry were employed for separation, identification, and quantitation of individual compounds in organic extracts. The ground water was shown to contain low levels of many undesirable organic chemicals leached from the landfill. Of those compounds identified (over 40), most were chemicals commonly employed in industry for manufacturing many domestic and commercial products.
