Point and non-point source leaching of pesticides in a till groundwater catchment


Engelsk: Very high concentrations of phenoxyherbicides are found in soil and groundwater under a machinery yard previosly belonging to Skelskør orchard. Downward migration pesticide peak concentrations of 1 to 2 mg/l are occuring at 5-7 m depth. The vertical migration rate of the pesticide front towards the aquifer at 22 m depth is 0.1 to 0.2 m/year. In the Skelskør orchard pesticide occurrence in soil and groundwater is erratic and the concentrations of findings are very low.
