This publication is concerned mainly with alkylbenzenesulfonate (ABS), the anionic surface-active agent most frequently found in water supplies. The authors discuss the prevalence of ABS as a pollutant, the analytical techniques for determining it, and the way ABS affects certain physical and chemical properties of water. The report gives a technical basis for understanding the mechanisms and physical principles of detergent movement below the ground surface. It provides an understanding and basis for engineering analysis. This publication does not constitute an FHA standard. (Author)
