Abstract Management practices such as optimization of application procedures or establishment of buffer zones around drinking water wells are becoming increasingly important tools in protecting underground drinking-water supplies from residues of agricultural chemicals. The development of such management practices is a four-step process: (1) defining the regulatory objectives; (2) determining why specific agricultural chemicals reach ground water; (3) understanding the environmental fate of specific agricultural chemicals; and (4) developing chemical-specific management practices. In many instances, adoption of appropriate management practices can protect drinking-water supplies while retaining the benefits of continued use of the agricultural chemical.
