Short description: Results of the analysis of polychlorinated biphenyls in soil from numeral locations (on some locations, on two depths), indicate significant contamination of the investigated area ETS 110/35 kV - Zadar. It was reason for thoroughly investigation this site for levels of PCBs in soil samples around damaged capacitor. Because some samples show very high level of PCBs (even over 100 mg/kg) it was concluded to collected surface of the most polluted part of ground to investigate possibilities of remediation.
