    Organochlorine pesticides continue to enter United States streams from atmospheric deposition and erosion of soils contaminated from past use. Pesticides with moderate-to-low water solubility, and moderate-to-high environmental persistence, have the potential to accumulate in sediment and aquatic biota.   One of the most acutely hazardous pesticides still used in the United States, aldicarb is a carbamate insecticide that is taken up by roots and carried into the fruit of a plant.

Capel Sacramento, California In the United States, pesticides were found to pollute every stream and over 90% of wells sampled in a study by the US Geological Survey. Pesticide residues have also been found in rain and groundwater. Studies by the UK government showed that pesticide concentrations exceeded those allowable for drinking water in some samples of river water and groundwater.

A decadal assessment by the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) provides the most comprehensive national-scale analysis to date of pesticide occurrence and concentrations in streams and ground water, based on results from studies completed during – Federal Pesticide Regulation.

In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates pesticides at the national level. Congress gives the EPA this authority through several federal laws, including the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).

Pesticides by their very nature are meant to be toxic and therefore are a hazard to the environment (a poison by any other name is still a poison).

In the United States, pesticides are used onfarms and reportedly found in 70 million households. Pesticide usage in the United States stood at million pounds in pesticide concentrations in streams and rivers.

Consideration of these influences is vital to understanding trends in pesticide concentrations. Introduction. More than million kilograms (kg) of pesticides (including herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and other pes-ticides) were used in in the United States for agriculturalCited by: 9.
