  • GENERAL INFORMATION Pentachlorophenol is a white organic solid with needle-like crystals and a phenolic odor. The greatest use of pentachlorophenol is as a wood preservative (fungicide). Though once widely used as an herbicide, it was banned in 1987 for these and other uses, as well as for any over-the-counter sales.

  • GENERAL INFORMATION Polychlorinated biphenyls are a group of organic chemicals which can be odorless or mildly aromatic solids or oily liquids. Polychlorinated biphenyls were formerly used in the United States as hydraulic fluids, plasticizers, adhesives, fire retardants, way extenders, de-dusting agents, pesticide extenders, inks, lubricants, cutting oils, in heat transfer systems, carbonless reproducing paper. The major sources of polychlorinated biphenyls in drinking water are runoff from landfills; and discharge of waste chemicals.
  • GENERAL INFORMATION Alachlor is an odorless white solid. Alachlor is used as an herbicide for control of annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in crops, primarily on corn, sorghum, and soybeans. The major source of alachlor in drinking water is runoff from herbicide used on row crops.
