This is a one-time, anonymous pesticide waste collection event for farmers, growers, and other commercial and institutional operations located in
bromoxynil, carbaryl, chlorpyrifos, diazinon, malathion, methomyl,metolachlor, prometryn, and 1,3-dichloropropene.
The attached graphic file is designed as a quick reference for pesticide applicators, and is a reminder that buffers are required specifically for salmon and steelhead protection:
The graphic has live links that get people to the EPA Salmon Mapper site, which is a great reference for figuring out exactly where the buffers apply. Links to the state pesticide regulatory agencies are also provided.
These buffer zones will remain in place for carbaryl, chlorpyrifos, diazinon, malathion, and methomyl until EPA implements any necessary protections for Pacific salmon and steelhead based on reinitiated consultations with the National Marine Fisheries Services. Buffer zones for the remaining four chemicals will remain in place until final Biological Opinions are completed.
