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

Health advisories or drinking water standards being established for most pesticides by U.S. EPA, or in some cases by state agencies, are benchmarks for determining the concern one should have if a pesticide is found in their drinking water. Water supply system owners are required by law to treat water where a pesticide is found above a drinking water standard. Alternatives are to use wells that are not contaminated, or other supplies. Those responsible for contamination could be held liable for treatment costs or alternative water supply expenses.
