EPA Updates Human Health Benchmarks for Pesticides

EPA has updated its list of human health benchmarks for pesticides. EPA develops the benchmarks for use by states and water systems in determining whether the detection of a pesticide in drinking water or source waters for drinking water may indicate a potential health risk. This year, EPA added 11 new benchmarks to the list, revised 10 of the benchmarks published in 2012 to reflect new scientific information and added cancer effects benchmarks for 40 of the pesticides
