The metaldehyde issue
'Get Pelletwise' is the campaign of the Metaldehyde Stewardship Group (MSG) that was set up in response to analysis showing traces of metaldehyde, an ingredient of certain slug pellets, being found in catchments used for water abstraction.
It's a serious issue that means every user of metaldehyde slug pellets MUST adhere to best practice guidelines to help achieve compliance with stringent drinking water standards.
The MSG's aim is to promote and encourage best practice with metaldehyde slug pellets, to minimise environmental impacts, and, in particular, protect water. The Group is working with the farming industry to prevent the problem recurring.
