Overview of pesticide data in Alberta surface waters since 1995

Description

Alberta Environment (AENV) has measured pesticides in surface waters since the mid-1980’s and reports on pesticide concentrations in surface waters as part of its evaluation and reporting responsibilities. In 1995 the approach to pesticide monitoring was updated to link ambient monitoring to pesticide sale records. Every five years provincial pesticide sales data, information on pesticide behaviour and toxicity, and results of surface water monitoring programs, are reviewed to priorize active ingredients that need to be monitored in surface waters. The overall objective of this report is to provide an overview of the extent and nature of pesticide contamination in Alberta’s surface waters. The overview covers all data from 1995 to 2002 inclusive that are stored on the AENV Water Data System.
