October 18, 2011

The MOE has collected the results of monitoring surveys of agricultural chemicals in golf course drains, which is conducted by local governments and regional environment offices in FY 2010.
The monitoring surveys were conducted in accordance with the "Tentative Guideline for the Prevention of Water Pollution by Agricultural Chemicals Used in Golf Courses," hereinafter referred to as "the Guideline." 22,727 samples from 563 golf courses were measured in the survey and no sample of the drains exceeded reference values of concentrations set in the Guideline (Table 1 and Table 2).

The Ministry has established the Guideline in 1990 for local governments to implement prevention measures on water pollution, which are caused by agricultural chemicals used in golf courses. The Guideline provides the methods of measurement of agricultural chemicals used in golf courses as well as the reference values of concentration of agricultural chemicals.
