Local challenges and water contaminants

The drinking water resources are treathened by nutrients, pesticide residues and microbials and pharmaceuticals. Nutrients (nitrate and phosphorus) mainly from inorganic/organic fertilisers and from farmyards and septic tanks. Pesticides (mainly MCPA and its metabolites) from crop spraying.

Microbials and pharmaceuticals from organic fertilisers and septic tanks.
