Dieldrin, we filter that.
DIELDRIN is an insecticide and a breakdown product of another insecticide called Aldrin. Dieldrin and aldrin were widely used on crops like cotton and corn from the 1950s to 1970. The U.S. Department of Agriculture cancelled
all uses of Aldrin and dieldrin in 1970. In 1972, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved aldrin and dieldrin for killing termites. The manufacturer of aldrin and dieldrin cancelled the insecticides’ registration
for termite control in 1987. Since then, aldrin and dieldrin have not been used in the U.S. In general, levels of aldrin and dieldrin in drinking water are very low.
Aldrin and dieldrin (also known by their lengthy chemical names, abbreviated as HHDN and HEOD, respectively) are insecticides formerly used to control soil-dwelling and wood boring insects, including termites and ants. Due to their high toxicity, they have been banned in most countries but they are persistent pollutants, remaining in soil for many years in temperate climates.
