The 1992 Pesticides in Ground Water Database Report was created to provide a more complete picture of ground-water monitoring for pesticides in the United States. The report is a summary and analysis of the data that the Office of Pesticide Programs currently has available, both computerized and in hardcopy, in the Pesticides in Ground Water Database (PGWDB). The report consists of data from 153 ground-water monitoring projects located in 45 States. Information for the report was solicited from State environmental and/or agricultural agencies, other Federal agencies, and research institutions. The report does not contain data from the National Survey of Pesticides in Drinking Water Wells (NPS).

The report is divided into a National Summary volume and 10 EPA Regional volumes. In the National Summary volume, pesticide and well data are presented by State. In the regional volumes, pesticide and well data are presented by State/county.
