Abstract:
Arizona’s approach to aquifer and groundwater protection is ax-ante and four tied. On the federal level, pesticides are required to be registered under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act. The Arizona Department of Water Resources registers the use of these pesticides in Arizona. The Aquifer Protection Plan Program distributes permits to allow pollutants to be discharged into the water supply in certain quantities. Lastly, the Safe Drinking Water Act regulates the amount of contaminants that can be permitted in drinking water. This paper evaluates each of these four approaches to aquifer protection regulation, including the application of the regulations.
