Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP)
Part of the Pesticide Management Education Program

Four major factors determine whether or not a pesticide is likely to reach groundwater:
  • the properties of the pesticide,
  • the properties of the soil,
  • the conditions of the site, and
  • management practices.
These factors explain why some pesticides have been found in groundwater and others have not, and why they have been found in some areas, but not in others.
