Analytical procedures are described for the determination of Kepone in water, using benzene, toulene-ethyl acetate, or ethyl ether-hexane as solvents. The procedure is presently being used to quantify dissolved Kepone concentrations of less than 15 ng/l in the James River and thus provide further information on its behavior in natural waters. Preliminary results show dissolved Kepone concentrations of 3.0-10 ng/l in the vicinity of Skiffes Creek along the James River.
