Fate and persistence of aquatic herbicides

  • K. H. Reinert

Part of the Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology book series (RECT, volume 98)


Herbicides can control the majority of aquatic and ditchbank weeds and are many times the most effective choices in aquatic weed control (Bottrell 1979). Herbicide usefulness can be reduced by potential risks due to the presence of the herbicide and the incidental or secondary effects, such as lowered dissolved oxygen due to macrophyte decomposition. Consequently, the number of chemicals registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for aquatic use is limited, and when they are registered, restrictions are usually imposed (Way and Chancellor 1976).
