Preface to Environmental Chemicals Desk Reference Book

The proliferation of research publications and continuing public awareness dealing with the fate, transport, and remediation of hazardous substances in the environment has again necessitated expansion of the fourth edition of the Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference.

Information in this publication was combined with similar information in the Agrochemicals Chemicals Desk Reference, which resulted in the Environmental Chemicals Desk Reference.

Agrochemical data that appeared in both publications are listed only in the Groundwater Chemicals chapter.

To accommodate additional information while maintaining this book in a single volume, the Synonym Index was deleted.

Also, the Exposure Limits section was deleted because these data are constantly being reviewed and revised periodically by independent organizations

(e.g., American Conference of Governmental Hygienists), and state and/ or federal regulatory agencies (e.g., Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health).

Consequently, any changes to exposure data included in this type of publication would be quickly outdated. Therefore, it is recommended the user refer to the originators of these data and/or

a certified Industrial Hygienist or equivalent for up-to-date exposure information to ensure appropriate actions are employed to protect human health.

Also deleted in this edition is the Symptoms of Exposure section. Generally, this information accompanies exposure limit data in various publications.

Lastly, the Drinking Water Standards promulgated and/ or proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are also deleted from this edition.

In many instances, states have promulgated groundwater and/or drinking water standards that are equal to or more stringent than U.S. EPA drinking water standards.

Therefore, it is recommended that the reader refer to the appropriate state regulations as guidance for complying with these standards on a case-by-case basis. Since the publications of the Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference and the Agrochemicals Chemicals Desk Reference, additional data have been critically reviewed.

Much of the additional data and information was focused on the environmental fate and behavior of these chemicals.

A concerted effort was undertaken to review information from original publications to replace references from secondary (quoted) sources.

The book is based on more than 4,600 references, an increase of more than 300 references since the third edition.

Most of the citations cited herein were obtained from peerreviewed, original publications in the documented literature.

Every effort has been made to present precise, accurate, and reliable information in a clear, consistent format.

The publisher and author would appreciate hearing from readers regarding the corrections and suggestions for material that might be included for use in future editions.

We hope that this latest edition will continue to be a valuable resource to those in the environmental community dedicated in preserving, protecting, and remediating our environment.
