Abstract

The behaviors of five chlorophenols and three chlorophenoxyphenols (CPPs) have been investigated at the chemical waste disposal site at Alkali Lake, Oregon. All of the compounds demonstrated similar trends in areal distribution hydraulically downgradient from the site. The transport distances for the di- and trichlorophenols were influenced greatly by their ionization in the high pH (approx. 10) ground water. In batch equilibrium experiments, these compounds were found to have K//p values of 0. 0 for the soil and ground water taken from the site. The retardations observed relative to 2,6-dichlorophenol were less than predicted based on the batch equilibrium results. Additional study results are discussed.
