Water testing Comprehensive + Pesticides list of water contaminant test parameters

This article lists the water test parameters likely to be employed if one has reason to suspect that a property or well has been treated or contaminated with pesticides. Readers should note that there are two broad groups of pesticide (such as DDT) tests that may be ordered from most labs.

The choice of pesticide test group depends on the history of the property and whether or not an older or more recent collection of pesticides are suspected of having been employed. Be sure to review actual parameters with your home inspector or laboratory: parameters and costs vary.
