Contamination at old market gardens - recommendations on environmental investigations
Swedish title: Föroreningsproblematik vid gamla handelsträdgårdar - råd vid miljötekniska undersökningar
This publication is based on data and documentation from environmental investigations conducted at about 100 different sites. Although there is relatively extensive experience of environmental investigations of former market gardens, there is considerable variation in the quality and scope of the investigations. The most frequently occurring organic contaminants in soil are DDT and its degradation products, quintozene/pentachloroaniline, aldrin/dieldrin and hexachlorobenzene.
