Summary

Introduction Potential offsite impacts to public and ecosystem health from exposure to current-use pesticides and other organic contaminants are a growing concern in Hawaiʻi. In response to these concerns, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Agriculture (HDOA), initiated a comprehensive pesticide-monitoring program of surface water in Hawaiʻi in 2016. The State of Hawaiʻi Department of Health (HDOH) is collaborating by providing technical and scientific assistance. The objectives of the Hawaiʻi pesticide-monitoring program include (1) documenting the occurrence and distribution of current-use pesticides in surface water of geographically distinct agricultural and developed areas [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to make available the quality-assured pesticide-concentration results for 32 discrete water samples that were collected on the islands of Kauaʻi and Oʻahu between November 21, 2016 and April 29, 2017. The water samples were collected for the Pesticide-Monitoring Program of Surface Water in the State of Hawaiʻi. This dataset also includes a summary of the pesticide results for these water samples.
