After some research at the library, she found an EPA pesticide fact sheet, which defined Lindane as an isomer of benzene hexachloride.
Subject to the investigation are five types of organic-chlorine insecticide -- aldrin, dieldrin and endline, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and benzene hexachloride (BHC).
Lindane, known technically by synonyms such as gamma benzene hexachloride and gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane, has been in use for about 50 years.
Data gathered during an in-depth investigation and study conducted under EPA oversight by private parties (potentially responsible for the contamination) between 1984 and 1987 indicated the presence of benzene hexachloride (a pesticide-associated chemical), lead and chromium in area groundwater and benzene hexachloride, dieldrin, chlordane, and toxaphene (all pesticide chemicals) in on-site soils.
