Abstract

A risk assessment of organochlorine contamination was undertaken a rice field  in Serayu upper watershed of Wonosobo District. This study aims to assess the potential non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic risks that the community must face, specifically the contamination of organochlorine residues in soil and crop yields being consumed. The risk assessment methodology is based on that devised by the Agency for ToxicSubstances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Soil and plant samples from paddy fields in Wonosobo District were extracted using the SNI 06-6990.1-2004 method, and then measured using GC Shimadzu. Results showed there were potential carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic risks due to soil contaminated by residues of organochlorine Lindane, Heptachlor, Aldrin, Chlordane, Toxaphene, Dieldrin, DDT, Endrin, Endosulfan, and Mirex. There is a potential risk through oral exposure when people consume celery leaves and leeks, and both foodstuffs were found to contain dieldrin and lindane, aldrin, and chlordane. Conversely, rice produced from rice fields was free of any organochlorine content. According to the ASTDR classification, the paddy fields in Wonosobo District will need to be better monitored in the future.


Key words: organochlorine, paddy fields, risk assessment
