The National Rivers Authority (NRA) recognises the threat pesticides pose to aquifers across England and Wales. As a result, the NRA has continued to investigate the problems in the Granta Catchment. The objectives of this work are: to determine the fate and transport of selected priority pesticides in surface and groundwater; to relate measured levels of pesticides to their patterns of use and physico-chemical properties; to developed predictive models of pesticide transport and fate.
