Table of Contents

 

Sites where halogenated SVOCs may be found include burn pits, chemical manufacturing plants and disposal areas, contaminated marine sediments, disposal wells and leach fields, electroplating/metal finishing shops, firefighting training areas, hangars/aircraft maintenance areas, landfills and burial pits, leaking collection and system sanitary lines, leaking storage tanks, radiologic/mixed waste disposal areas, oxidation ponds/lagoons, pesticide/herbicide mixing areas, solvent degreasing areas, surface impoundments, and vehicle maintenance areas and wood preserving sites. Potentially applicable remediation technologies are presented in Table 2-4. Typical halogenated SVOCs, excluding fuels and explosives, which are presented in subsection 2.7 and subsection 2.10, encountered at many sites include the following:

1,2,4-Trichlorobenzene 4-Chloroaniline Hexachlorobenzene
1,2-Bis(2-chloroethoxy) ethane 4-Chlorophenyl phenylether Hexachlorobutadiene
1,2-Dichlorobenzene Bis(2-chloroethoxy) ether Hexachlorocyclopentadiene
1,3-Dichlorobenzene Bis(2-chloroethoxy) methane o-dichlorobenzene
1,4-Dichlorobenzene Bis(2-chloroethoxy) phthalate p-Chloro-m-cresol
