Abstract The document lists the chemical composition of leachates from 13 hazardous waste sites located through the U.S. Based on this data, laboratory formulated 'leachates' were suggested to test liner compatibility. General observations made were: the leachates were approximately 99% aqueous and 1% organic by weight; only 4% of the total organic carbon (TOC) was characterized; of the characterized TOC, the most significant portions were organic acids and oxygenated/heteroatomic hydrocarbons. Halogenated hydrocarbons were less, but still a significant portion of the overall organics content.
