Abstract: The study refers to translocation of some organochlorine persistent pesticides (Lindane, Aldrin, Endosulphane and DDT) in/from soil to surface and underground water and their accumulation in some crops in an agricultural area nearby Bucharest. The samples analysed were soil, surface water (Arges River) and underground water (wells). Pesticide residues were found especially in soil samples, in smaller quantities in surface waters and only in small quantities in underground water. The persistency of these chemicals in soil is correlated with the accumulation process effects in crops (were analysed samples of cabbage, radish and tomatoes), which might be hazardous for human health.
