  • Memorandum: Charge to the NPDES/Pesticides Work Group (PDF) (1 pp, 195K)

  • Signed by G. Tracy Mehan, III, Assistant Administrator for Water and Stephen Johnson, Assistant Administrator for Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances that directed an EPA workgroup to compare the risk management/risk mitigation measures that have been adopted as a result of the FIFRA label relative to actions that would be required as a result of an NPDES permit. It also directed the group to identify any recommendations that could be made under either FIFRA/FQPA (Food Quality Protection Act) or CWA that would assist in better coordination, integration, and increased efficiencies between the programs and continued protection of the aquatic environment. These could include modifications in the pesticide registration process or changes in the approach to risk management under the CWA and/or FIFRA.

  • Pesticides; Draft Guidance on Labeling Statements on Products Used for Adult Mosquito Control; Notice of Availability

  • EPA is seeking public comment on this draft notice which provides guidance to registrants on EPA's policy on labeling statements for pesticide products used for wide-area applications to control adult mosquitoes. The specific label statements and label organization principles recommended in this draft notice are intended to improve existing labels by clarifying language conveying environmental hazards posed by these products, as well as specific use directions and instructions to the applicators. The Agency believes that adoption of these recommendations will help pesticide users and pesticide enforcement officials to achieve more effective mosquito control and protection of public health, while ensuring that use of these products will not pose unreasonable risks to the environment. Comments must be received on or before July 27, 2004. Click here to view this draft guidance.
