Artifical turf (astroturf) is primarily composed of used rubber, often from recycled tires. This rubber contains several types of Volatile Organic and Inorganic Compounds, as well as heavy metals such as zinc and lead. As the astroturf is exposed to environmental stress such as sun exposure, wind and rain, these compounds can leach out of the astroturf. If the astroturf is situated in such a way as to allow for runoff (such as on a slope) these compounds could end up in water ways and groundwater, causing water pollution.
