Abstract: Water samples from 23 sites along a transect of the River Danube starting from Germany until the Black sea were collected during August and September 2007. Among the compounds analysed were HCHs (¿ a-, ß- ,¿- ,d- ,e-HCH), HCB, p,p¿-DDT, Total DDT ( ¿p,p¿-DDT, p,p¿-DDE, p,p¿-DDD, o,p-DDT), Cyclodiene pesticides (¿Aldrin, Dierldrin, Endrin, Isodrin), Endosulfan (¿ a-, ß), Chlordane (cis, trans), commercial pentabromodiphenylether (cPenta BDE, ¿BDE- 28, 47, 99, 100, 153, 154) , Anthracene, Flouranthene, Benzo(a)Pyrene, ¿Benzo(g,h,i)perylene, Indeno(1,2,3-cd)Pyrene, and ¿Benzo(b)- , Benzo(k)fluoranthene. The concentrations of almost all compounds were below related Annual Average (AA)-EQS, most of them by more than one or two orders of magnitude. HCHs and c-Penta BDE reached the order of magnitude of the AA-EQS. Only the ¿ of Benzo(g,h,i)perylene and Indeno(1,2,3-cd) pyrene, exceeded the limit in 5 sites out of 23. However, the maximal concentration was around 1.6 times the AA-EQS during one day in summer 2007 and the annual average concentration might as well be below the EQS.
