Caution should be exercised when handling 2,4-D pesticides at such sites to preventcontamination of groundwater supplies. Use of closed systems for mixing or transferring this pesticide will reduce the possibility of spills. Placement of the mixing/loading equipment on an impervious pad to contain spills will help prevent groundwater contamination.
