|Toelichting (Engels)||The purpose of this investigation was that of obtaining an understanding regarding the mobility of organic compounds in the soil and the permeation through piping materials of substances which affect drinking water quality. Therefore, the study consisted of two principal parts: transport of substances through the soil and permeation of organic matter through piping materials. A qualitative description of the transport of sub- stances in the soil and the effect of various factors on this is presented. The investigation into the permeation of organic materials through pipe walls was directed to those piping materials which had received the KIWA mark of approval and in which permeation cannot be excluded a priori. This involves the plastics PVC, LDPE and HDPE, rubber rings used in couplings and the materials which are sornewhat porous, namely, asbestos-cement and concrete.|
