What are the trends in water levels of atrazine and its breakdown products?
We need to continue to monitor water supplies for atrazine and its breakdown products in surface water, rural drinking water wells, and rainfall.
One of the needs that still has not been adequately addressed is whether atrazine breakdown products can affect human health. No Maximum Contaminant Levels in drinking water have been set for atrazine breakdown products.
There is still concern that seasonably high levels of atrazine in water supplies could affect sensitive populations, including children and developing wildlife.
