As the interface between the Earth’s atmosphere and the lithosphere, soil performs a number of diverse functions essential for life preservation and human activities; it is the substrate necessary for the growth of plants and animals and the basis for all agricultural production, and it serves as a protection and filtering layer necessary for clean groundwater supplies.

Once the leachate is created in the laboratory, a waste handler must determine whether it contains any of 39 different toxic chemicals above specified regulatory levels. If the leachate sample contains a sufficient concentration of one of the specified chemicals, the waste exhibits the toxicity characteristic (TC). S. EPA used groundwater modeling studies and toxicity data for a number of common toxic compounds and elements to set these threshold concentration levels. Much of the toxicity data were originally developed under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
