ABSTRACT
The article determines the amount and distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychiorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in water and crops from DaTong City, and examines the influence of organic contamination. Water samples were taken near the drainage mouth of several important industrial plants and along the Yu River and Shili River of DaTong City in May 1998. PAH were detected in all samples. Compared the investigation result with other data, the total PAHs levels were close to those in several rivers of the Pearl River Delta Region, China, but 2-3 orders of magnitude higher than those in the St. Lawrence River and its tributaries.
