During 2016, Penn State Extension Personnel delivered 19 “Keeping Pesticides out of Groundwater” presentations, reaching 14 separate Pennsylvania counties. A total of 1,178 pesticide applicators, representing 16,418 acres of land where pesticides are applied, attended the extension trainings. Penn State Extension Water Resources Educator, Jim Clark, will share the contents of this groundwater protection presentation. Applicators were taught, and the webinar will discuss, the characteristics of groundwater, how contamination can happen, and what steps can be taken to protect groundwater.
