Technical Abstract: An extensive study of air, rain and surface water concentrations of twenty-five currently used pesticides, organochlorine pesticides and three degradation products was conducted during the summer of 1996 in the Patuxent River Watershed. Air and rain were collected at three locations and water was collected at four representative locations in different areas sof the river. Results indicate that a significant source of pesticides is located in the upper watershed area.
