Frequent Questions

5. How does oxamyl get into my drinking water?

Major sources of oxamyl in drinking water are runoff and leachate from its use as an insecticide and leakage, poor storage, or improper disposal practices related to its use and manufacture.

A federal law called the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) requires facilities in certain industries, which manufacture, process, or use significant amounts of toxic chemicals, to report annually on their releases of these chemicals. For more information on the uses and releases of chemicals in your state, contact the Community Right-to-Know Hotline: (800) 424-9346.
