The use of rhodamine wt for tracing ground water contamination

, : The use of rhodamine wt for tracing ground water contamination. Northeastern Environmental Science 1(1): 59-62

In legal proceedings relating to groundwater contamination, proof must be provided that a potential source of contamination can flow to the well in question. In 2 instances Rhodamine-WT was applied to the ground in the area of the potential source of groundwater contamination. The recovery of the dye in the drinking water well was sufficient evidence to convince the judge that this was the source of contamination and the offended homeowners were able to receive compensation. In a 3rd study using Rhodamine-WT as a tracer, no conclusive result could be obtained to prove the travel of the contaminant from a suspected source to the drinking water supply.
