State Generic Pesticides and Groundwater Management Plan | South Dakota Department of Agriculture

State Generic Pesticides and Groundwater Management Plan

SDDA received concurrence on the Generic Pesticides and Groundwater Management Plan in March of 2000. This information was developed in response to Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) requirements for developing Pesticides and Groundwater Management Plans to protect groundwater from pesticide contamination.

This plan was intended as a generic plan designed to lay the framework and set out a general process for a Pesticide Specific State Management Plan (PSSMP). However, the EPA did not require states to develop PSSMPs for pesticides. Instead, the generic plan outlines the process needed to regulate pesticides in groundwater and surface water in South Dakota.

This Generic State Management Plan (GSMP) for South Dakota is intended to describe how programs and policies already in place will be used to address concerns related to pesticides and groundwater quality. In addition, it describes how the South Dakota Department of Agriculture’s authority to regulate pesticides may be used to augment these activities. The South Dakota GSMP provides the framework and basic concepts needed for the State to regulate pesticides in water.
