    GWMAP data - surface water In surface water from our St. Cloud study, at least one herbicide was detected on 29 of 32 occasions. Degradates accounted for 61 of 78 detections and 93 percent of the total herbicide mass detected. Health and Risk Concentrations of parent compounds were below drinking water criteria. The degradates do not have. This is a detailed report on the herbicide 2,4-D.

Verstraeten Herbicides and their by-products commonly are present in Nebraska's major rivers in small concentrations, but these concentrations increase in the planting Author: Ingrid M. Verstraeten. How Herbicides get into Drinking Water.

The two most common ways for herbicides to enter drinking water supplies are: Gradual accumulation in the soil where they slowly percolate down into underground water. Heavy rainfall and irrigation which wash herbicides off farmland and into lakes and rivers.

The amount of runoff is particularly astonishing. Atrazine is a frequently used herbicide used on corn, soybeans, sorghum, sugar cane, pineapple, pine trees, other crops and as a non-specific herbicide on industrial sites.

It is of particular concern to water supplies due to its popularity, relatively long half life (60 to days) and because it is not strongly absorbed by soil (Koc = ~). Minimizing risk from herbicide use Two important factors in herbicide selection and use are potential risks to human health and the environment.

It is our policy that any herbicide used on state highway right of way is studied based on how we will be using the chemicals.

Herbicide use while being of a great benefit in controlling weeds in agricultural systems can also pose a threat to environmental quality due to off-target and off-site impacts. The increasing concern about risks associated with agricultural chemicals and specifically their impact on surface and groundwater quality is a national and international concern.

In Kentucky, herbicide off-site Author: George F. Antonious. When working near waterbodies, plan to transport mixed (diluted) pesticide rather than concentrates. If the spray tank contains dilute pesticide while the spray vehicle is travelling on public roads, display the pesticide name.

It is a violation of federal law to use an herbicide in a manner inconsistent with its label. The effectiveness of vegetative buffer strips (VBS) for reducing herbicide transport has not been well documented for runoff prone soils.

The behavior of an herbicide in water is dictated by its solubility in water. Water bodies.Best Management Practices to Reduce Atrazine Losses to Surface Water The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) has identified several public water supplies that do not meet the water quality standard for atrazine.

During the next two years, IEPA will be developing a help slow herbicide runoff into surface water. Establish grass.Approximately 99% of herbicides are released into the air, water and soil and only 1% reaches the targeted weed [6].

Such changes become crucial to preserve natural resources and product quality.
