Abstract

Ground water contamination from hazardous substance spills, leaking storage tanks and leachate migration from landfills is a problem of great national and international concern. The so-called 'Superfund' has been mandated to clean-up severely contaminated sites. There are, however, insufficient resources to effect immediate action at all of the sites identified to date, and it is also anticipated that there will be more sites added to the list in the future. This paper presents results from an ongoing study directed at obtaining parameters describing the behavior of phenol in two ground water aquifer soils. Both batch time rate and equilibrium adsorption and desorption experiments are described as well as flow through soil column experiments. Results from the soil column experiments are simulated using mathematical models.
