The pesticides most frequently detected in drinking water -- the triazines and the acetanilides -- cause a litany of health effects, including cancer, birth defects, and disruption of the endocrine (hormone) system.

Those pesticides that are more hydrophobic tend to be detected more frequently in sediment; thus, measuring pesticides in sediment is important for tracking their fate in the environment and evaluating for potential toxicity.
