Pesticides, including commonly used herbicides such as glyphosate have the potential to contaminate our drinking water supplies. If chemical pesticides are not properly stored or applied, a heavy rainstorm can carry these chemicals through the storm drainage system directly into streams and ponds. Once these chemicals enter a stream or pond they can be toxic to fish and wildlife, and can pose a threat to human health. Many pesticides do not break down in the environment and can remain for long periods of time in water, air and soil.
