Abstract:

Public concern has been expressed over the possibility that leachates from a pesticide waste-disposal site in northeastern Hardeman County, Tennessee, might eventually reach the Memphis area and endanger the Citys water supply. An examination of the possible pathways and means of transport of these contaminants reveals that, although a pathway exists, the probability of pollutants migrating from the disposal site in Hardeman County to the Memphis area in detectable concentrations is unlikely.
