Assessment of Storm Water Related Chlorophenol Releases From Wood Protection Facilities in B.CMicroform - 1987
Storm water runoff from sawmills and lumber export terminals was suspected as a significant source of chlorophenols to adjacent water courses based on a 1978 Environment Canada Study. During 1986 and 1987, a four-month field study was conducted at five sawmills and two lumber export terminals. The sites represented typical lumber handling and treatment methods including dip tanks, low pressure and high pressure spray systems. Leachate dripping directly from the wood and yard runoff was analyzed for 2,3,4,6-tetrachlorophenol and pentachlorophenol using a gas chromatography method.
