Fig. S1a. Outer stainless steel mesh cylinder, in this example, supporting three Empore™ disks. Up to nine Empore™ disks can be supported by the mesh cylinder.
Fig. S1b. Empore disk deployment rig being lowered into a groundwater well.
Fig. S2. Continuous recordings of electrical conductivity (with LTC Levelogger® Junior, Solinst, Canada) in SIS-non-impacted (green) and in SIS-impacted (red) groundwater at the DJR site during the deployment period of the rigs. This period was characterized by several rainfall events (blue). Decrease in electrical conductivity following rainfall highlights the presence of low-mineralized stormwater in SIS-impacted groundwater.
Fig. S3. Schematic workflow for the structure confirmation of identified compounds.
Fig. S4. Workflow used for the identification of PesticideScreener 2.1.
Fig. S5. Chromatographic peak areas of the selected pesticide and pharmaceutical contaminants found among the forty confirmed compounds in the SIS-impacted groundwater of the GB site with the two (SDB-RPS and SDB-XC and) EDs.

Table S1. Characteristics of the five stormwater infiltration systems and wells. Unsaturated zone thickness: distance between soil surface and groundwater table, well depth: vertical length of the well below soil, infiltration surface: area of the infiltration basin, catchment area: area of impervious surface collecting stormwater drained to the basin, surrounding areas: activities in the catchment area.
Table S2. Combination of scores of each of the three criteria for both precursor and product ions used to calculate the Tscore.
Table S3. List of 101 contaminants identified in stormwater runoff, SIS-impacted and non-impacted groundwater collected from the both types of EDs exposed in the five SIS around Lyon.
Table S4. List of contaminants identified and excluded after injection of a reference standard in groundwater and stormwater runoff samples collected from ED exposed in the five SIS around Lyon, France.
Table S5. List of contaminants identified (Level 1) in stormwater runoff samples collected from EDs exposed in the five SIS sites around Lyon.
