Thorneloe, S., K. Connolly, AND M. Rodgers. WORKSHOP REPORT - CONSIDERATIONS FOR DEVELOPING LEACHING TEST METHODS FOR SEMI- AND NON-VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-16/057, 2016.

Impact/Purpose:

This is a report of a workshop hosted by the US EPA on Sept 16 & 17, 2015 in Arlington, VA to exchange information concerning how to evaluate the potential for release of semi- or non-volatile organic constituents at contaminated sites where sub-surface treatment has been used to control migration, and from waste that is disposed or re-used.

Description:

The report provides a summary of the information exchange at a workshop on the potential for release of semi- or non-volatile organic constituents at contaminated sites where sub-surface treatment has been used to control migration, and from waste that is disposed or re-used. The workshop also considered how to predict sub-surface leaching potential at the outer edge of the treated media, or in disposal or material re-use situations, at the unit or use boundary. Representatives from EPA and academia participated in the workshop. Workshop discussions focused on identifying technical issues for further consideration to support the development of tools that may be used in making determinations of protectiveness and regulatory compliance.
