Abstract:

The report gives pertinent analytical details, specific collection, locations, and analytical results of surface water analyses of samples collected from the scheduled component of the Department of the Army Pesticide Monitoring Program during the period of 1 September 1972 thru 31 December 1974. A total of 306 surface water samples collected from 44 military installations were analyzed. Thirteen samples representing five military installations were positive for residues. Four different pesticides, including dieldrin, diazinon, aldrin, and endrin, were found in the water samples. Dieldrin was the most prevalent pesticide residue detected in the samples. Discussions regarding the possible origin of the positive pesticide findings noted are also presented.
