ABSTRACT
The paper presents the results of the researches in sorption process. Selected waste materials were checked to build a barrier for pesticide migration from existing graveyards. Due to primary researches Sokolka compost was selected for further researches. The sorption barrier was designed by the surface and underground water run-off. The line of the barrier was made around the centre of graveyard, 0.5 meter width and 4.0 meters deep up to the non-permeable ground layer. GC analyses have shown the presence of pesticides in piezometer before the barrier and no pesticides in water outside sorption barrier. Due to researches it was found that prevention barrier was successful.
