EU adds pesticides to water watch list

A group of eight pesticides has been included in the European Commission’s first “watch list” of chemicals that are considered of possible concern for water pollution. They will be monitored over one or two years, the results of which may lead to the imposition of controls to reduce concentrations in water sources. The pesticides are: the acaricide/insecticide, methiocarb; the neonicotinoid insecticides, acetamiprid, clothianidin, imidacloprid, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam; and the herbicides, oxadiazon and tri-allate.
