Protecting Ground Water Fact Sheet

DPR’s Ground Water Protection Program evaluates and samples for pesticides to determine if they may contaminate ground water, identifies areas sensitive to pesticide contamination and develops mitigation measures to prevent that movement. We also adopt regulations and do outreach to carry out those mitigation measures. The measures are designed to prevent continued movement to ground water in contaminated areas and to prevent problems before they occur in other areas.
