Description

In December of 1987, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released Agricultural Chemicals in Groundwater: Proposed Pesticide Strategy. The strategy is designed to ensure that the potential health and environmental impacts resulting from contamination of groundwater with pesticides are fully considered in pesticide registration decisions so that unreasonable risks can be identified and avoided. A critical component of the strategy is the prominent role that individual states can potentially have in future regulation of pesticide use. Of many individuals potentially affected by EPA's proposed strategy, few have felt any impact of the strategy on current pesticide use practices. However, since the release of the proposed strategy, EPA has moved foxward with the development and implementation of the strategy. Included below is a description of the proposed strategy (as stated by EPA in the 1987 publication) and a discussion of potential impact at the state level.
