The report summarizes the findings, conclusions, and recommendations relative to the use of pesticides in the forested regions of New York State, and the resultant impact on the aquatic environment. It is organized on a chronological basis. The scope of this study starts with an historical sketch on the use-development of pesticides in New York State forest management and concludes with indications as to the potential role of pesticides in the future. The fate of pesticides and their impact on the aquatic environment is chronologically summarized by consecutive presentation of what is applied, how is it applied, how it moves from the forest to the aquatic environment and finally, the manifestations of the pesticide within the aquatic environment.
