Data in this release were collected and computed to evaluate the occurrence of pesticides in shallow groundwater in the state of Alabama. Additionally, these data support interpretation in Gill (2023) for a cooperative project between the U.S. Geological Survey and the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries. During 2009-2020, samples were collected from twenty-four wells located near agricultural land use in Alabama and evaluated for concentrations of agricultural pesticides and pesticide degradates. Most data produced from the sampling effort are available from the publicly accessible USGS National Water Information System (NWIS; U.S. Geological Survey, 2023). For certain pesticide compounds, data were combined from multiple analytical methods to provide a longer period of record in order to evaluate changes in concentrations and occurrence through time. All groundwater quality data used in Gill (2023), including supporting quality assurance datasets, are included in this data release.
