September 16, 2010

The MOE has collected the results of a monitoring survey of agricultural chemicals in golf course drains conducted by local governments and regional environment offices in FY 2009.
The monitoring survey was conducted according to the "Tentative Guideline for the Prevention of Water Pollution by Agricultural Chemicals Used in Golf Courses", hereinafter referred to as "the Guideline." 23,810 samples from 635 golf courses were measured in the survey, and no sample exceeded the reference values of concentrations set in the Guideline was detected (Table 1 & 2).

The Ministry developed the Guideline in 1990 for local governments to prevent water pollution caused by agricultural chemicals used in golf courses. The Guideline provides the methods of measurement of agricultural chemicals used in the golf courses and the reference values of concentration of agricultural chemicals.
