Tough question: If benzene is detected in a surface water....
If benzene is detected in a surface water, is it possible that the source of the benzene could have come from para-dichlorobenzene? I don't know if that compound is able to break down or separate into chlorine, benzene, etc. I would love a solution to this, thanks.
Photolysis of para-dichlorobenzene is an excellent way of degrading this molecule. Use the following link to learn para-dichlorobenzene's environmental fate:
By the way, there are so many questions I could answer but most of my time is spent moderating Water and Wastewater Professionals Forum at:
or attending to several LinkedIn Groups:

Water and Wastewater Laboratory Professionals:
By the way, the Water and Wastewater Professionals Group is doing much better that WEF's and WEF Young Professionals and is currently the number 10 rated wastewater Linkedin Group in just less than 6 months.
Doh! that reference you provided was great! Thank you much!
