Description A reconnaissance survey was conducted to refine methods and identify sampling sites for the surface water portion of the Washington State Pesticide Monitoring Program. Water samples were collected from 11 freshwater sites representing urban, forest practices, and agricultural pesticide use. Samples were analyzed for 162 pesticides and breakdown products; including organochlorines, organophosphates, nitrogenous pesticides, pyrethroids, chlorinated herbicides, carbamates, volatile pesticides, urea pesticides, glyphosate, and diquat and paraquat.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
