Chloroform (CFM)

Chloroform (CFM)

Definition

Also known as trichloromethane. A chlorinated hydrocarbon (CHC) that historically was generated as a byproduct in the production of other CHCs on the BIP. It can also be generated in the aquifer by the degradation of CTC as well as by the reaction of chlorine derived from the degradation of other volatile CHCs with naturally-occurring organic matter within the aquifer.
