Results from the sampling of ground water and sediments, within the National Environmental Monitoring Program of Pesticides, are found here. Ground water is collected at two depths, four times a year, in each of the four model catchments that are included in the surface water monitoring program. Sediments are collected once a year at the surface water sampling site (in the stream draining the model catchment), as well as in the two rivers in the county of Skåne, in the south of Sweden, that are also included in the monitoring program.
