Monitoring for Pesticides in Wyoming’s Water

In 1991, members if local, State, and Federal governments, as well as industry and interest groups formed the Ground-water and Pesticide Strategy Committee to prepare the State of Wyoming’s generic Management Plan for Pesticides in Ground Water. Part of this plan was to determine if pesticides are found in the Wyoming’s water. The Wyoming Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Geological Survey have sampled the State’s groundwater and surface water for pesticides since 1995. Details of the sampling efforts can be found in publications and on the web.
