View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Soil contamination is caused by the presence of man-made chemicals altering the composition of the natural soil environment. This type of contamination typically arises from the rupture of underground storage tanks, application of pesticides, percolation of contaminated surface water to subsurface strata, oil and fuel dumping, leaching of wastes from landfills, or direct discharge of industrial wastes to the soil. The most common chemicals involved are petroleum hydrocarbons, solvents, pesticides, lead and other heavy metals. Soil pollution is generally greater in industrialized areas. The concern over soil contamination stems primarily from health risks, particularly because of the contamination of water supplies and food sources.
