Description Twenty-seven wells near Yakima, Washington, were sampled in September 1992 for 123 pesticides and nitrate+nitrite-N. Field measurements of water temperature, pH, and specific conductance were also made. Eleven wells were in the Moxee Surficial Aquifer and sixteen wells were in the Ahtanum Surficial Aquifer.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
