Project objectives:
To measure degradation rates of organic chemicals in waste disposal sites and groundwater using in situ and laboratory methods in order to assist with the evaluation 
of risk associated with deliberate or accidental disposal of organic chemicals, assessing pollution plumes and designing appropriate remedial action.
An additional objective is to develop methods for testing waste destined for landfill.
Project Summary:
The project addresses five issues, including:    
The influence of particle surfaces on degradation rates of organic chemicals in groundwater under anaerobic conditions.    
Correlation of degradation rates of xenobiotic organic compounds in laboratory and field conditions
