Very low concentrations of pesticides were found in 45% of public supply wells sampled in the Cen­ tral Columbia Plateau.

No pesticides were detected at concentrations exceeding enforceable U.S. Environmental Protec­ tion Agency (EPA) drinking water : Sarah J.

Ryker, Alex K. Williamson. Water Quality of Public Supply Wells. In a study of U.S. public-supply wells, water pumped from about one in five source-water samples (that is, before treatment) contained one or more contaminants at a concentration greater than a human-health benchmark for drinking water.

Supporting information and summary data for the study can be found. Pesticides and radon in ground water (10, bytes) Figure Locations of wells sampled for pesticides and volatile organic compounds in the Central Columbia Plateau.

Samples from wells in the Central Columbia Plateau were analyzed for pesticides and volatile organic compounds (figs. 18, 20).

Predicting arsenic in drinking water wells of the Central Valley, California. Probabilities of arsenic in groundwater at depths used for domestic and public supply in the Central Valley of California are predicted using weak-learner ensemble models (boosted regression trees, BRT) and more traditional linear models (logistic regression, LR).

Groundwater-quality data were collected from wells as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment Project of the U.S. Geological Survey National Water-Quality Program and are included in this report.

Most of the wells () were sampled from January through December and 60 of them were sampled in and 74 in •Pesticides were detected in 60 percent of shallow wells and 46 percent of deeper public supply wells. •Concentrations of only three pesticides exceed the MCL or a health advisory: dieldrin, EDB, and 1,2-dichloropropane.

These pesticides have been discontinued from use, and the exceedances occur in only 2 percent of the wells. Pesticides in Public Supply Wells of Washington State F7act Sheet FS June Pesticides in Public Supply Wells of the Central Columbia Plateau F6act Sheet Oct.
