Aggregate exposure and risk assessments involve the analysis of exposure to a single chemical by multiple pathways and routes of exposure. The pathways of exposure considered in this general principles document include the potential for pesticide residues in food and drinking water, as well as residues from pesticide use in residential, non-occupational environments.

This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for stream water samples for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. The sampling includes a total of 9 rivers across PEI, with at least 3 of the rivers being sampled each year. Stream water samples are collected at least once per year during wet weather sampling conditions. Department staff collects the samples, which are then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for drinking water samples for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. Over 100 wells are monitored annually, with samples being collected in drinking water wells of private homes, schools, municipalities, and seniors’ housing facilities. Sampling of the wells is conducted each January/February by Departmental staff. The samples are sent to a laboratory in New Brunswick for analysis.
