These 12 priority POPs include 8 organo-chlorine pesticides: aldrin, chlordane, dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT), dieldrin
, endrin, heptachlor, mirex and toxaphene; two industrial chemicals: hexachlorobenzene (HCB) and the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) group; and two groups of industrial by-products: dioxins and furans.
Among those covered are polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and terphenyls (PCT) and tris (2,3 dibromopropyl) phosphate, several forms of asbestos, 2,4,5-T, aldrin, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin
, heptachlor, hexachlorobenzene, lindane, mercury compounds, pentachlorophenol and methyl-parathion.
1950s Organochlorine pesticides (including Dieldrin
and Aldrin) introduced into widespread agricultural use.
Residues of pesticides banned in foods years ago, such as dieldrin
, continue to show up regularly, and potent toxins are still legally applied to food crops.
They are dioxins and related furans; polychlorinated biphenyls; and the pesticides aldrin, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin
, endrin, heptachlor, hexachlorobenzene, mirex, and toxaphene.
Degrades to dieldrin
. Alpha-BHC Insecticide introduced in 1942, no longer used in U.S.
The 12 -- PCBs, DDT, dioxins, chlordane, furans, hexachlorobenzene, aldrin, mirex, dieldrin
, toxaphene, endrin and heptachlor -- are all organochlorines and most are pesticides.
The pollutants are aldrin, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin
, dioxins, endrin, furans, heptachlor, hexachlorobenzene, mirex, PCBs and toxaphene.
Over the past 40 years in Hawaii, there has been wide-spread use of endocrine disrupting pesticides, including DBCP, DDT, DDE, kepone, heptachlor, chlordane, dieldrin
, mirex, lindane and toxaphene.
The major contaminants of concern in the rock , soil and bedrock groundwater that exceed federal and state standards are: volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as tetrachlorethene, trichloroethene, vinyl chloride and benzene; semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), including bis (2-chloroethyl)ether; pesticides, such as aldrin and dieldrin
; and metals including arsenic and manganese.
