Study design

Details on sampling:
Samples were collected in 40 ml glass vials, no headspace, sealed with teflon lined caps. 40mg sodium thiosulphate added to each sample to remove residual chorine. Quadruplicate samples used plus field blanks as controls. Collection methodology described (either direct transfer to sample bottles or stainless steel ladle used). The authors recognised the potential for contamination from the plastic materials used in well construction.

Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

Ethanol was found in ground water suspected of leachate contamination (based on levels of inorganics) at 190ug/l at one of 13 sites, and was detected at 58ug/l in 1 out of 7 landfill ground water samples where inorganic levels indicated good or unknown water quality. It was found in 2 of 6 landfill leachates at concentrations in the range 23-110mg/l.
