Occurrence, sources of PAHs, and groundwater protection against pollution in the Cieszyńskie Źródła Tufowe Natura 2000 area.
A b s t r a c t. The paper deals with the problem of groundwater pollution with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the “Cieszyńskie Źródła Tufowe” Natura 2000 area. The concentration of 16 PAHs was measured with the use of the GC-MS method in seven water samples collected from the area of four enclaves belonging to the nature reserve. The results of analyses were compared with both the hydrogeochemical background and the limit value of PAHs concentration in drinking water, defined in the Regulation of the Minister for Health. Additionally, in order to determine the origin of contamination, PAH ratios for selected compounds were calculated. The paper also highlights the importance of the PAHs monitoring in groundwater.
