RS-Freetext:
Throughout Germany a comprehensive monitoring program on several chemicals in surface waters has been realised to check whether the limit values are not exceeded.
The following concentrations of 1,2-dichloro-4-nitrobenzene have been measured in the year 1999 (UBA):
River Measuring station (Type of Value)
Danube Ulm (90 % percentile) < 0.02 µg/l
Elbe Schnackenburg (maximum) < 0.02 µg/l
Rhine Kleve-Bimmen (90 % percentile) < 0.5 µg/l
For 1,2-dichloro-4-nitrobenzene the limit values in surface waters have been set at 20 µg/l to protect aquatic life and at 1 µg/l to protect drinking water. These values have not been exceeded in the years 1996 - 2001 (Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit 2001; update by Umweltbundesamt 2003).
