Description
 
Anne M. Happel (au); Edwin H. Beckenbach (au); Rolf U. Haden. Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) is a fuel oxygenate added to gasoline to reduce air pollution & increase octane ratings. This chemical has resulted in frequent detections of MTBE in samples of  groundwater from urban areas in the U.S. Limited contamination of drinking water has also occurred & is of concern because MTBE is considered a human carcinogen by the EPA & has a disagreeable taste & odor at low concentrations. This report focuses on the inadvertent release of this compound to the environment from leaking underground fuel tanks with the goal of providing information on the potential for MTBE to impact Californiaís groundwater resources.
