Chlordane, a pesticide no longer authorized for use in the United States, has been detected in certain Lake Roland fish tissues at levels requiring issuance of a fish consumption advisory. This advisory has been in place since February 5, 1986. As a consequence of impairment by chlordane, Lake Roland (in the Jones Falls Watershed) was identified as a WQLS on the 1996 additions to Maryland's 303(d) list. The State intends to periodically monitor contaminant levels in fish tissues from Lake Roland to track the expected gradual decline in chlordane concentrations. The goal of the monitoring program will be to identify fish tissue levels that would allow for the withdrawal of the fish consumption advisory.
