      The hydraulic conductivity index values assigned to the New Mexico aquifer media types were assigned to their matching aquifer media types in Colorado: Hydraulic conductivity in units of gallon-per-day per square-feet Assigned DRASTIC index value unconsolidated sand and gravel aquifers, 2; carbonate-rock aquifers, 10; sandstone aquifers, 1.   Perhaps there is a reasonable way to resolve this dilemma in the case of transboundary aquifers. Given the sensitivity of aquifers to pollution and the near impossibility of decontamination, it is reasonable to assert that for any aquifer, but particularly for transboundary aquifers, the principle of no significant harm must have priority.

General Study Guide: () All individuals seeking a commercial pesticide applicator’s license must take the General test.

When you order a General Study guide, you will also receive a copy of the “Colorado Pesticide Applicators’ Act” and the “Rules and Regulations Pertaining to the Administration and Enforcement of the Pesticide Applicators’ Act” so you can learn the laws.

Pesticide resistance “Resistance may be defined as a heritable change in the sensitivity of a pest population that is reflected in the repeated failure of a product to achieve the expected level of control when used according to the label recommendation for that pest species” ().Resistant individuals tend to be rare in a normal population, but indiscriminate use of chemicals can.

Pesticide contamination of groundwater is a subject of national importance because groundwater is used for drinking water by about 50 percent of the Nation's population.

This especially concerns people living in the agricultural areas where pesticides are most often used, as about 95 percent of that population relies upon groundwater for.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture's Pesticides Program regulates the distribution and use of pesticides in the state to prevent adverse impacts to the public and the environment.

Rapid and widespread urban development, primarily along the western boundary of the Denver Basin, has approximately doubled the population since aboutand much of the population depends on. p. Aquifer sensitivity refers to the relative ease with which a pesticide can migrate to an aquifer of interest, and is a function of the intrinsic properties of the aquifer and overlying geologic materials.

Aqui­ fer sensitivity is not dependent on land-use practices or pesticide properties. Aquifer vulnerability refers to. Pollution of groundwater is a primary issue because aquifers are susceptible to contamination from land use and anthropogenic impacts.

Groundwater susceptibility is intrinsic and specific. Intrinsic vulnerability refers to an aquifer that is susceptible to pollution and to the geological and hydrogeological features. Technical Report: Screening methods for groundwater pollution potential from pesticide use in Colorado agriculture.

Results of sensitivity analysis of the TLPI can be used to show that groundwater pesticide contamination depends on hydrological, pesticides and soil properties, and climatic conditions. However, soil characteristics, pesticides properties and climatic conditions appeared to be key factors in evaluating vulnerability in a hypothetical.

The aquifer sensitivity map (described in Section IV) also indicates that both of theses areas rank from moderate to highly sensitive to contamination from nitrate. Figure 3.

The Arkansas River is a draining river of surface water contaminated by pollutants of the big farms in Colorado. This type of water flows downstream through Kansas. Wells were selected based on the importance of an aquifer to a region, known application and storage of pesticides in the area, and the vulnerability of the aquifer to contamination.

Risk analyses indicated that selected pesticides can pose a contamination threat to an unconfined aquifer in areas consisting primarily of sandy loam soil; sandy loam soils are common in the San Luis Valley.

Water-quality samples collected from some wells during and indicated trace- to low-level pesticide contamination. The environmental sensitivity of the greenhouse location; of drinking water contamination by pesticides.

Colorado Senate Bill requires bulk storage facilities that annually handle more than 3, pounds (or gallons) of bulk formulated pesticide to meet specified variables affecting aquifer vulnerability. The use of pesticides is a potential threat to local groundwater. Once groundwater is contaminated, it is very difficult to clean.

Thus, it is of importance to assess the risk of contaminating local groundwater at an early stage when pesticides are found in soils. This knowledge will also help in remediation strategies. Traditional methods of deterministic analysis cannot explicitly account. Already, 14 percent of all Ogallala irrigation wells tested contained one pesticide or more.

Most common was Atrazine.
