Monitoring drinking water quality and protecting human health: ANSES proposes a method for identifying relevant pesticide metabolites

Monitoring drinking water quality and protecting human health: ANSES proposes a method for identifying relevant pesticide metabolites

Pesticides disperse into the natural environment where they can transform into one or more other compounds called "metabolites". These chemical metabolites can potentially contaminate water resources and even water supplied to consumers. Water quality controls are increasingly detecting situations where regulatory quality limits are exceeded, meaning that management measures are needed before distribution.
