Pesticide ELISA Data for Nebraska Ground Water

In 2004, local NRDs were provided resources to analyze ground water for specific pesticides using Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA).
With ELISA methodology, NRDS have the capability to evaluate their ground water resource for pesticides, -at a relatively low cost. NRDs and others use these results to evaluate the presence of pesticides in ground water, but do not make drinking water safety determinations. In order to be used for drinking water compliance, EPA stipulates
that certain ELISA results must be confirmed using an approved method. See Analytical Methods Approved for Drinking Water Compliance Monitoring.
The NRD ELISA Project Metadata
file describes sample collection and analysis, and data evaluation.

2. Select Analyte(s) from the following list:
The pesticide analytes are listed by chemical ingredient (e.g., atrazine, metolachlor). If you know only the trade name
(e.g., Roundup, Harness, Bladex**), please exit to the National Pesticide Information Retrieval System to find the chemical ingredient.
