The aim of this work was to study the behaviour of some of the main citrus selective residual herbicides in the water of an irrigation well. The chemicals used were: atrazine, simazine, terbuthylazine, terbutryn, terbumeton, bromacil and diuron. The simetric triazines and bromacil were analyzed by gas chromatography and diuron by HPLC. The mentioned pesticides were introduced in the well in order to simulate a point-source contamination. Levels of contamination of the well due to herbicide application were about 1 mg/l, however, dissipation of the herbicides was almost complete 8 days after application, except for bromacil and diuron which persisted longer than the s-triazines.
