Summary

Concentration results and quality assurance for pharmaceutical, hormone, and per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) analyzed in landfill leachate and wastewater influent and effluent. Samples were collected between July and October 2016, using U.S. Geological Survey field methods. Water-quality samples for pharmaceutical and hormone compounds (reported in nanograms per liter; ng/L) were analyzed at the U.S. Geological Survey, National Water Quality Laboratory in Denver, Colorado. Samples for PFAS compounds (reported in ng/L) were analyzed at the Oregon State University Environmental and Molecular Toxicology Field Laboratory, College of Agricultural Sciences.

Purpose

These data were collected to expand the knowledge of organic compounds detected in landfill leachate that is discharged into municipal wastewater treatment facilities and thereby the effluent from those facilities. A full description of the project and results can be found in Masoner and others, 2020 (see Larger Work Citation in this metadata for full reference citation).
