Atrazine is still in trouble...
This type of information format is not easy to counter emotionally. And farmers end up looking like insensitive tools too often when we try.

With the rising question of weed resistance making many of us reach for new/old herbicide tools, losing atrazine would really hurt. It could be some farms/areas will have to be "sacrificed" to reach a compromise with regulators.
Personally, I would favor more local monitoring at farmer expense to provide hard evidence our farm is not contributing to the problem. This would impact coarse soils most, and ease the burden on high clay soil types, I would guess. These areas also seem to overlap somewhat with irrigation as well.
This is pretty "throw-under-the-bus" for the farm community, but solidarity should not be the impediment to solving the problem where the problem exists.
