that would almost certainly vote to ban atrazine use in its state!
Who would want to live in & depend on water that is so full

Atrazine is the second largest selling
pesticide in the world
It is an herbicide (weed-killer) used
primarily on corn
Also of note, it is used in forestry after
Approximately 80 million pounds [40 mk]
of atrazine are applied annually in the US,
primarily in corn growing states
Atrazine is the most common pesticide
contaminant of ground and surface water.
It is also highly mobile and can travel in
A half million pounds of atrazine return to
the earth in rainfall and snow [...] every year.
Studies in both the US and in Europe have shown
that atrazine can travel as much as 600 miles [1000 k]
from the point of application ]
Atrazine is also highly persistent and
remains in groundwater
Thus, even if atrazine use was stopped today,
it would be another generation (at least) before the
environment is atrazine-free.
