The collection and analysis of samples for pesticide and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's) were included in the Atchafalaya River Basin Water and Land Study. From 1974 to 1977, 743 samples were collected from 118 stations in the Atchafalaya Basin. Water, bottom sediment, and fish samples were analyzed for 9 organophosphorus compounds and 18 organochlorine compounds. No organophosphorus compounds were detected in any fish, water, or bottom sediment samples. Only a few organochlorine compounds, i.e., aldrin, dieldrin, PCB's, chlordane, and DDT and its derivatives, are present in bottom sediments of the Atchafalaya Basin. With the exception of PCB's none of the compounds was detected in water samples. Aldrin, dieldrin, PCB's, and DDT and its derivatives were found in fish samples. The pattern of pesticide distribution that emerges in the Atchafalaya Basin reflects the agricultural activity within or affecting the various hydrological units of the Basin.

Contents Notes
A secret Pentagon assessment sent to the White House in May 2006 forecasted a more violent 2007 in Iraq, contradicting the repeated optimistic statements of President Bush. This book examines how the Bush administration avoided telling the truth about Iraq to the public, to Congress, and often to themselves. In this detailed inside story of a war-torn White House, Woodward answers the core questions: What happened after the invasion of Iraq? Why? How does Bush make decisions and manage a war that he chose to define his presidency? And is there an achievable plan for victory?--From publisher description.
