Abstract Ponds and streams in Braxton, Kanawha, Mason, Jackson, and Hampshire Counties, West Virginia, were sampled to determine the accumulation, persistence, and movement of picloram residues in surface waters and bottom sediments. The highest residue levels of 437 gmg/L in water and 657 gmg/kg dry weight basis (243 gmg/kg wet weight basis) in bottom sediments were detected within one to three weeks after application of picloram (Tordon 10K) pellets at the rate of 44.8 product kg/ha. Residue levels in water and sediments decreased with distance from application sites and time since application.
