Contents Notes
"Samples of treated (finished) water were collected after rainfall from 33 public water supplies using surface water sources." "Detectable concentrations of one or more of ten pesticides were found" in 30 of the supplies. "Current conventional water treatment technology is ineffective at substantial reduction of pesticide concentrations or elimination of pesticides from drinking water." "Current pesticide monitoring requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act are inadequate."
