Abstract/Contents:"Scientific and regulatory interest in ground water contamination by pesticides increased significantly in 1979. This was promted by findings of the nematicide 1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane (DBCP) and the nematicide/insecticide alicarb (TemikĀ®) in ground water in several states. Since that time, at least 130 pesticides and pesticide metabolites have been detected in ground water in over 150 studies, but detection frequencies are 4-10% nationally. Detection frequencies of pesticides over Health Advisory Levels are generally lower. Screning-level models and detailed computer simulation models are useful for risk assessments and regulatory decisions. Attenuation Factor, CMLS, PRZM2, GLEAMS, and LEACHM are all useful models."
