Abstract

The authors wish to note the following: “In the original calculation of sorption-retarded transport through porous media, log Koc (4.998 to 5.078) values were used instead of Koc values (104.998 to 105.078 L kg-1). This propagates to transport times of 0.001 to 4 m·y−1 (over 200 y to migrate a 1-km distance) for the detected phthalates. Critically, we note that this does not change the primary conclusions or principle arguments; the presence of bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate would have to occur via some enhanced transport or solubilization process, as discussed in the original contribution.
