The biodegradation, photolysis, and adsorption of pentachlorophenol (PCP) in outdoor, aquatic environments were examined with man-made channels built by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at a field station on the Mississippi River near Monticello, Minn. Four channels were used, each channel being approximately 520 m long and receiving river water that flowed through the channels for about 10 h before reentering the river.
