The incorporation of chlorine into compounds during the disinfection of waste effluents with chlorine is an undesirable end result of effluent treatment due to an increase in the persistence and bioaccumulatability of the chloro-organics. The problems that arise with bioaccumulation of organic compounds are generally not immediately apparent, and a major segment of the ecosystem may be contaminated before the problem is recognized. A discussion of chlorinated compounds found in waste-treatment effluents and their capacity to bioaccumulate is presented. Attention is especially drawn to an unreported compound type, the chloroanisoles.
