EPA Method 608.2:
The Determination of Certain Organochlorine Pesticides in Municipal and Industrial Wastewater

Organochlorine pesticides are removed from the sample matrix by extraction with methylene chloride. The extract is dried, exchanged into hexane, and analyzed by gas chromatography. Column chromatography is used as necessary to eliminate interferences which may be encountered. Measurement of the pesticides is accomplished with an electron capture detector.

This method covers the determination of certain organochlorine pesticides in industrial and municipal wastewater.
