Detection-Detail Table interface


This table lists the details for each reported detection by well and pesticide. Each detection will have a code for the status DPR has assigned to the detection and any memos or studies DPR has done in response to the report. It also lists all pesticides that have been reported in the well and the number of different samples that have shown pesticide residues.
