Hellmann's results have confirmed again speculation about the impact of sample composition on the assessment of surfactants in surface water, sludge, and soil. The MBAS method analyzes mainly biogenic pseudosurfactants if surface waters are investigated. This is confirmed by the research of Steber at the Rhine at Düsseldorf-Himmelgeist from 1990 to 1992 (Fig.

Substantial concentrations of MBAS have been found occasionally in the river or surface waters used for drinking and industrial process water supply. For the Ruhr area, this had dramatic effects (Fig. 3) during the last weeks of the dry year 1959. An emergency situation occurred for the water supply in the city of Essen.
