Water, soil and biotic components from a natural drainage system in the Woodlands, a developing community in Texas, were assayed for halogenated compounds. PCB's were highest during year one (about 350 ppb in soil and animal samples) and diminished to 1/10 of those values during the second and third years of study. The highest residue values were coincident with the period of development when cut and fill operations, roadbed construction, and service installation were being effected. Mirex and chlordane were found in soil, water, and organisms from the drainage system around the golf course. These were also observed compounds in mosquitofish collected from the same area. Both compounds entered lakes by storm water and/or washed in by returning irrigation water from the golf course. Organisms from a stream which received storm waters from the lakes contained less insecticide than the golf course sampling.
