Ecological Assessment of Organochlorine Pesticides in the Surface Water from Huaihe River, China

Chunnian Da, Mei Yue, and Shengping Liu
Abstract—Thirty-four surface water samples were collected from Huaihe River, China. The organic compounds were extracted by solid-phase extraction (SPE) system and detected by gas chromatography (GC) using a mass-selective detector. HCHs were the dominant organochlorine pesticides in surface water. The results of PCA suggested there was some similar interrelation between individual OCPs. Health risks assessment indicated that the risks of children were higher than adults both carcinogenic risk and non-carcinogenic risk. The carcinogenic risk analysis indicated the health risks were very low for children, and there were not carcinogenic risks for adult.

Index Terms—HCH, DDT, health risk assessment, Huaihe River.
