Drinking Water Neonicotinoid Monitoring Study

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks started a project to determine the potential levels and occurrence of neonicotinoid insecticides in Ontario source waters and treated drinking waters, in support of Ontario's Pollinator Health Action Plan.

Samples were collected from four drinking water systems that participate in the Drinking Water Surveillance Program. Locations selected for monitoring focused on areas with significant corn/soybean acreage and history of pesticides detections.
