A critical examination was made of pesticide usage and its effect on the aquatic environment in the Southeastern United States. The report summarizes many aspects of existing technology, current regulatory statutes and alternatives. Literature citations are supplemented by reports of actual case studies. From these findings a number of conclusions are drawn and recommendations formulated. Implementation of the recommendations would have marked benefit beyond the Southeast.
