Description: Purpose and scope: This report presents results of a survey conducted in New York from 1978-80 to determine the occurrence and extent of ground-water contamination by organic chemicals and to establish whether airborne contaminants from industrial and metropolitan centers might be a factor in aquifer contamination. To these ends, 74 samples from 56 wells at 49 sites across New York State excluding Long Island1 were analyzed for the organic chemicals listed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as "priority pollutants." The general location of sites sampled is given in figure 1 (p. 26); information on wells sampled is given in table 8 (p. 27).
