illustration on concentrations of atrazine

Concentrations of atrazine were 10 times higher and increased more rapidly in Canajoharie Creek than in the Mohawk River following Summer 1994 storms in the Hudson River Basin. The Mohawk River receives water not only from Canajoharie Creek but also from other tributaries draining a mix of land uses.
