These included twenty samples from 19 wells in eastern Pulaski County, thirteen wells in Lee County, 16 wells in Jackson County, two wells in Lonoke County, one well in Crittenden County and resamples of two wells in Woodruff County. Figure 1 shows the locations of the 3 counties where the majority of the samples were taken and Figures 2-4 show the monitoring locations withing these counties. The wells were tested for nitrate and 13 pesticides listed in Table 3.
