Lack of data on the fate and impact of pesticides in freshwater systems prompted Environmental Protection Agency researchers in 1971 to select 10 representative materials (Figure 1) for detailed study. One of the needs highlighted at that time was for more reliable data on the rates, routes, and products of transformation. Subsequently, Paris and Lewis1 comprehensively reviewed the literature on microbial, chemical, and photochemical transformations of these materials and have since completed microbial studies with them.
