Pesticide Monitoring

The Pesticide Water Monitoring Program commenced in 2005. It was implemented as a means to increase knowledge and understanding as to the nature and extent of pesticide contamination of rivers and streams in Tasmania. Test results have demonstrated that our waterways are generally either free of pesticides or may occasionally have chemical traces at levels significantly below the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines health-related guideline values.

All test results for the Pesticide Water Monitoring Program, from the commencement of the program in 2005 to July 2014, are included in the following document.
