Two other national research sites are in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and Pensacola, Florida, where ground water has been contaminated by sewage and wood-preserving chemicals, respectively.

      This study characterizes the clay minerals in sediments associated with a plume of creosote-contaminated groundwater. The plume of contaminated groundwater near Pensacola, FL, is in shallow, permeable, Miocene to Holocene quartz sand and flows southward toward Pensacola Bay. Clay-size fractions were separated from 41 cores, chiefly split-spoon samples at 13 drill sites. Infiltration of wastes containing creosote and pentachlorophenol from surface impoundments at an abandoned wood‐treatment facility near Pensacola, Florida, resulted in contamination of the underlying sand and gravel aquifer. Pond sludges and sediments near the source were contaminated with 2‐ to 5‐ring azaarenes having log Kow values of from to However, the ground water.

Mattraw, Jr., and Bernard J. FranksCited by: Ground- and surface-water contamination by pesticides used in the wood-preserving industry is widespread in the United States. Pine poles were treated with wood preservatives from to at a creosote works near Pensacola, Florida.

Diesel fuel, creosote, and pentachlorophenol were discharged to two unlined impoundments that had a direct hydraulic connection to the sand-and-gravel aquifer. Inthe U.S. Geological Survey, Pensacola of Hazardous Waste Hydrology, selected the former American Creosote Works site near Pensacola, Florida as a national research demonstration area.

Seventy-nine years () of seepage from unlined discharge impoundments had released creosote, diesel fuel, and pentachlorophenol (since ) wastes into the ground-water system. Get this from a library. Movement and fate of creosote waste in ground water, Pensacola, Florida: U.S.

Geological Survey Toxic Waste Ground-Water Contamination Program.Abstract. Creosote is the most extensively used insecticide and industrial wood preservative today.

It is estimated that there are more than wood-preserving plants in the United States, and their collective use of creosote exceeds xl0 6 kg/yr (von Rumker et al., ).Creosote is a complex mixture of more than major individual organic compounds with differing molecular weights.American Creosote was a wood treatment business from until in Pensacola (see map.) The company used creosote, pentachlorophenol, and diesel fuel to treat telephone poles, railroad ties, and fence posts.

The company used two lagoons for waste water. The lagoons overflowed during rainstorms. The runoff would then go into Pensacola Bay.
