Abstract
Suffolk County, N.Y., has examined its groundwater for agricultural and organic contaminants since 1978. Recent discoveries of specific chemicals in private wells increased the concern over contamination and spurred a study to determine a cost-effective system for removing agricultural chemicals from groundwater. Tests of cellulose acetate; spiral-wound, thin-film composite; and hollow fiber membranes showed that reverse osmosis should be considered for pesticide and organics removal. Pilot tests should be conducted on in situ water to assure proper process design.
