Title: Pesticides in the aquatic environment : report of the National Rivers Authority, prepared by the National Centre for Toxic and Persistant Substances (TAPS)
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
In November 1995, the National Rivers Authority (NRA) published Water Quality Series Report No. 26 Pesticides in the Aquatic Environment. This was the first comprehensive report on pesticides and included data from 1992 and 1993. In October 1996 the Environment Agency (the Agency) updated this information by producing a document containing the 1994 data. This report follows on from those publications and summarises 1995 pesticide data, the final calendar year of NRA monitoring. It also looks at trends observed over the past four years and summarises the progress to date with the recommendations made in the Water Quality Series Report. It does not include information on pesticide legislation and use, which can be found in the Water Quality Series Report, but concentrates on the significance of the pesticides detected in the last four years.
