Agricultural chemicals and groundwater quality - a look ahead

Toxic Substances in Agricultural Water Supply and Drainage, 2nd Pan American ICID Regional Conference, 1989: 1-14
Agricultural chemicals and groundwater quality - a look ahead
Increased legislation and regulation of groundwater contamination levels particularly due to nitrates and pesticides are predicted in this paper. Groundwater contamination should be prevented from getting worse, but it is argued that more research is necessary to base regulations on sound criteria. Health effects and acceptable risks must be better formulated. Prevention of groundwater contamination is much better than cleaning up polluted aquifers.
