In certain areas of the country, pesticides are showing up where they are not wanted - in the drinking water. Fortunately, there are not widespread reports of pesticides occurring in Georgia drinking water. However, if pesticides are not handled carefully around the farm, they can seep through the ground after a leak or spill or they can enter a well directly during mixing and loading. Taking voluntary action to prevent potential pesticide contamination of ground water will help ensure their continued availability for responsible use by farmers. This assessment allows you to evaluate the environmental soundness of your farm and operational practices relating to your pesticide storage and handling practices.
