In this paper are presented concentrations of organochlorinated pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls in drinking water samples of Tirana water network stations, groundwater and commercial water from markets. The samplings were realized for eight different stations in network stations, five groundwater stations and ten commercial waters in January 2014. Water samples were analyzed with capillary gas chromatography technique with ECD. The water samples were extracted with hexane, dried with anhydrous sodium sulphate and cleaned up in an open Florisil micro-column. Rtx-5 (30mx x 0.33mm x 0.25 um) capillary column used for separation of organochlorinated pollutants. The most frequently detected pesticide where DDT metabolites, Aldrines and volatile PCBs. All the concentration levels of these chlorinated pollutants were below the EU Directive 98/83/EC.

Keywords: Organochlorinated pesticides,PCB markers, GC/ECD,Water samples.
