In 1991-1994 a screening study was performed on the presence of selected pesticides in two intake profiles of the river Rhine- and Meuse water for drinking water supply. From 35 studied pesticides, including organophosphorus compounds, phenylureas, carbamates, nitrophenols and chlorophenoxy acids only Diuron has been found in the Meuse water in concentrations exceeding the detection limit of the analytical method (0.1 ug/l).
