Atrazine is a herbicide used to control broadleaf and grassy weeds. Like other herbicides, Atrazine enters surface-water as a result of runoff, and enters underground-water by leaching - that's when water from rain, irrigation, or other sources flows through the soil, dissolves the chemicals in it, and carries them down into the groundwater that supplies wells and springs.
Short-term exposure to Atrazine can cause:
Congestion of the heart, lungs, and kidneys
Low blood pressure
Damage to the adrenal glands
Long-term exposure to Atrazine can cause weight loss, cardiovascular damage, retinal & muscle degeneration, and cancer.
