The present paper is apart of a greater research project aiming to determine the transboundary pollution of the Axios river, its water quality and the direct and indirect impacts to human health and environment. In the framework of this project. it has been determined the physicochemical and microbiological quality parameters, the presence of toxic chemical compounds and elements such as metals, pesticides and other related organic pollutants in various sampling stations during the year 2005. The analyses of the Axios river water showed the presence of one or more pesticides in all sampling stations, but in concentrations lower than 0.1 mu g/l, which is the highest permitted limit for each pesticide in drinking water, according to the Directive 778/80 of the European Union. The results showed a significant degradation of the water quality of the Axios river, which is mainly due to the presence of toxic organic pollutants like pesticides. (EN)
