Short description: The results of the analysis of the polychlorinated biphenyls in the soil from a number of points at the 110/35 kV Electrical Transformer Station in Zadar indicate significant contamination. Because there is some speculation about the possibilities of the inflow of spilled contaminants from the karstic soil of the city of Zadar to the coastal sea from other sources inside the city of Zadar, investigations of the chlorinated hydrocarbons in the atmosphere and soil of several parts of the city of Zadar were performed and are presented in this paper.
