INTRODUCTION
This digest  is compiled to provide general information to the public as well as to
Federal, State, and  local  officials.   It  contains  excerpts  from the  individual
Federal-State water  quality standards establishing pollutant specific  criteria for
interstate surface waters. The water quality standards program is implemented by
the  U. S.  Environmental Protection Agency where  responsibility  for  providing
water  quality recommendations, approving State-adopted standards  for interstate
waters, evaluating adherence  to the standards,  and overseeing  enforcement  of
standards compliance, has been mandated by Congress.

Standards, a nationwide strategy for surface water quality management,  contain
three  major  elements:  the use (recreation, drinking  water,  fish  and  wildlife
propagation, industrial, or agricultural) to be made of the navigable water;  criteria
to protect these uses; and  an  antidegradation statement to protect existing high
quality waters, from degradation by the addition of pollutants.

Water   quality  criteria  (numerical   or  narrative specifications)  for  physical,
chemical, temperature, and biological constituents are stated in the July 1976 U. S.
Environmental Protection Agency publication Quality Criteria  for Water  (QCW),
available from the Government Printing Office, Washington, D. C.  The 1976 QCW,
commonly  referred  to as the "Red  Book,"  is the most current compilation  of
scientific information used  by  the Agency  as a basis for assessing water  quality.
This publication is  subject  to periodic  updating and revisions in light  of new
scientific and technical information.

This digest summarizes fifteen pesticides which are usually incorporated into State
Water  Quality Standards and for  which EPA has recommended criteria in the  1976
Quality Criteria for  Water.   These pesticides  are:  Aldrin/dieldrin,  chlordane,
chlorophenoxy herbicides, DDT, demeton,  endosulfan, endrin,  guthion, heptachlor,
lindane, malathion, methoxychlor, mirex, parathion, and toxaphene.  All of these
chemicals are man-made for  the control  of insects,  fungus  and  other plant and
animal diseases or disease  vectors.   The  presence of any of these substances in
national waters are a result of an intrusion from non-point sources associated with
agricultural or forestry application and point source production facility effluents.
To control  the presence of aldrin/dieldrin, DDT (DDD and DDE),  endrin and
toxaphene  in  water,  EPA promulgated effluent  standards  for  manufacturers  of
these pesticides (40 CFR 129).

All of  these substances exert detrimental effects on aquatic and animal life; some
are suspected mutagens or carcinogens.  For  these reasons EPA recommended the
following ambient water quality criteria for each compound:

aldrin/dieldrin    0.003 ug/1 for freshwater and marine aquatic life.
                  The persistence, bioaccumulation potential, and carcino-
                  genicity of aldrin/dieldrin caution  human  exposure to  a
                  minimum.

Since water  quality standards experience revisions  and upgrading from time to
time, following procedures set forth in the Clean Water Act, individual  entries in
this  digest may  be superseded.  As these revisions are accomplished and allowing
for the States to revise their standards accordingly, this digest will be updated and
reissued.  Because this publication is not intended for use other than as  a general
information resource, to obtain the latest information and for special purposes and
applications, the reader  needs  to refer to  the  current  approved water  quality
standards.  These can be obtained from the State  water pollution control agencies
or the EPA or Regional Offices.
