Water Safety And Health

Rarely has imidacloprid been found in surface or well water. When it has, the amounts are miniscule (0.5 – 2 parts per billion) and 100’s to 1000’s of times lower than what the EPA considers to be a level they would be concerned about. Never has the amount found been higher than 6.7 parts per billion and that happened only one time after a farm spill in New York.

To put this in perspective, a 150-pound adult could drink 21,000 gallons of water containing 3 ppb of imidacloprid every day for 70 years and still not reach levels shown to have effects on humans in lab studies.
