German term or phrase: kerosinstämmig
Veranlassung für die angeordnete regelmäßige Überwachung des Grundwasserschadens waren Ergebnisse von Detailuntersuchungen, die im Jahr 2004 durchgeführt wurden. Wesentliches Ergebnis dieser Untersuchungen war u.a., dass eine begrenzte Ausdehnung der Grundwasserbelastung gegeben ist und sich deutliche Hinweise auf einen natürlichen Abbau der Schadstoffe (kerosinstämmige Kohlenwasserstoffe) ergaben.

agree  Textklick: I suspect that this not good German in terms of 'stämmig' bu I think we can assume 'where they are coming from'. I'd go with kerosine-derived hydrocarbons.

agree  Zareh Darakjian Ph.D.: Yes. Kerosene-derived and it is hydrocarbons, not hydrocarbonates. These are compounds containing only C and H.
