In April 1985 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 10 initiated a study to evaluate the potential in Washington State for groundwater contamination from normal agricultural use of pesticides, and to gain a state overview of the problem. The three study goals included: (1) identify and map vulnerable groundwater areas in the State of Washington; (2) determine use of pesticides thought to be leachable in these vulnerable areas; and (3) identify and prioritize geographic areas of concern based on the maps and use dates. The mapping effort shows that extensive areas of Washington have the potential for groundwater contamination by pesticides. The data provides estimates of crops grown and pesticides used within the vulnerable areas of each county.
