Pesticides in ground water will remain a major regulatory and environmental issue in the
following decades. Especially for domestic wells, which do not come under any regulatory
compliance, direct monitoring will not be feasible. As a result, alternate methods to assess
their vulnerability will be implemented by state and federal agencies. The use of state
management plans for pesticides is one of the ways to reduce their contamination of ground
water. Soon each state will be required to develop pesticide-specific management plans for
its own conditions.
