Due to active and not always well regulated agricultural practices over the years, in many areas groundwater has been polluted by different types of pesticides. Today, even with active prevention, specific extraction locations, and adequate draining systems in farmlands, the groundwater is still exposed to the threat of being highly contaminated by pesticides.
These chemicals used to control various types of pests found in agriculture are highly toxic for human and animal consumption posing both: acute and chronic health hazards. Older types of pesticides that are outlawed by some countries, yet still used in others, can last multiple years in the soil as well. As pesticides are inorganic, human-made substances, some of them take a long time to break down, and during intense rainfall can make their way to groundwater. It possesses further challenges as these inorganic substances mix with organic ones creating new, unfamiliar, and more resilient compounds.
