Considerable amounts of organochlorine pesticides (DDT, lindane, heptachlor and methoxychlor) were detected in drinking water samples during a two-year study in Warka-Grojec rural region of Poland. The average incidence of drinking water sources with detectable levels of pesticides ranged from 20 to 30%. According to Polish regulations concerning water quality, individual concentrations did not reach the maximum admissible level. However, the levels of pesticides in most cases exceeded the maximum admissible concentrations recommended by the European Union
