A Ground Water Protection Area (GWPA) is defined as an area of land that is vulnerable to the movement of pesticides to ground water according to either leaching or runoff processes. The table below provides links to maps for those counties that have one or more GWPAs. (Counties not listed have no GWPAs.)
