Due to recent expansion of the Groundwater Program to include surface water, the groundwater working committee was expanded in 2007 and renamed the Water Quality Advisory Committee (WQAC). The WQAC includes several state and federal agencies with an interest in water resources, including the North Dakota Department of Health, North Dakota State Water Commission, North Dakota Game and Fish Department, North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department, North Dakota Geological Survey, NDSU Extension Service, U.S.
A working committee was formed in 1991 to assist the Department in developing an EPA approved Generic State Management Plan (GSMP) to protect groundwater from pesticides. This plan outlined a strategy to prevent degradation of groundwater by pesticides while protecting the beneficial uses of pesticide products. It is designed to protect groundwater quality, encourage pesticide user education, and provide technical assistance.
