Subject: Looking for data on pharms in landfill leachate

All-

Does anyone know of any peer reviewed journal articles that discuss pharmaceuticals in leachate from modern landfills with liners and leachate collection systems ?

In particular I am looking for information on:

*         Mobility of pharmaceuticals in leachate and ground water vs. the mobility of other contaminants;

*         Compatibility of pharmaceuticals with synthetic liners and/or compacted clay liners;

*         Concentrations of pharmaceuticals in ground water downgradient from lined solid waste landfills.

I already have the following articles:


*         Behr, R., Stahler, D., Pistell, A. 2010. Preliminary Characterization of the Pharmaceutical Content of Municipal Solid Waste Landfill Leachate from three landfills in Maine. Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

*         Barnes, K.K., Christenson, S.C., Kolpin, D.W., Focazio, M.J., Furlong, E.T., Zaugg, S.D., Meyer, M.T., and Barber, L.B. (2004). "Pharmaceuticals and other organic waste water contaminants within a leachate plume downgradient of a municipal landfill." Groundwater Monitoring & Remediation 24(2): 119-126.

*         Eckel, William, et al. (1993) Pentobarbital found in Ground Water, Ground Water, Vol. 31, Issue 5, pp 801-804.

I know of the following article but have not been able to locate it:


*         Buszka, P. M., Yeskis, D. J., Kolpin, D. W., Furlong, E. T., Zaugg, S. D., & Meyer, M. T. (2009). Waste-indicator and pharmaceutical compounds in landfill-leachate-affected ground water near Elkhart, Indiana, 2000-2002. (2009) Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, 82(6), 653-659.
