Title: Developing management practices for preventing residues of agricultural chemicals in drinking water wells

Abstract

Management practices such as optimization of application procedures or establishment of buffer zones around drinking water wells are becoming increasingly important tools in protecting underground drinking-water supplies from residues of agricultural chemicals. The development of such management practices is a four-step process: (1) defining the regulatory objectives; (2) determining why specific agricultural chemicals reach ground water; (3) understanding the environmental fate of specific agricultural chemicals; and (4) developing chemical-specific management practices. In many instances, adoption of appropriate management practices can protect drinking-water supplies while retaining the benefits of continued use of the agricultural chemical.
