A study on the concentrations of synthetic organic chemicals in leachate from the municipal landfill of Lake Charles, Louisiana, was conducted from June 1987 through March 1989. The primary objective of this study was to provide information on the concentrations of synthetic organics in leachate from a typical municipal landfill. Leachate analyses yielded the presence of a variety of synthetic organic compounds at wide ranges in concentration. These compounds are potentially dangerous to human health.
