Final Rule: Application of Pesticides to Waters of the U.S. in Compliance with FIFRA

November 27, 2006

Final Rule: Application of Pesticides to Waters of the U.S. in Compliance with FIFRA

Final Rule: Application of Pesticides to Waters of the U.S. in Compliance with FIFRA

EPA has issued a final rule clarifying two specific circumstances in which a Clean Water Act (CWA) permit is not required to apply pesticides to or around water. They are: 1) the application of pesticides directly to water in order to control pests and 2) the application of pesticides to control pests that are present over or near water, where a portion of the pesticides will unavoidably be deposited to the water in order to target the pests. To learn more about this rule, please visit www.epa.gov/npdes/agriculture
