The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR)’s Surface Water Protection Program (SWPP) has been monitoring pesticides in urban waterways since 2008. Pesticides are a concern in urban waterways due to high use of pesticides in urban areas and high potential for pesticide runoff from impervious surfaces. SWPP’s urban monitoring studies have found concentrations of pyrethroids and fiproles (fipronil and its degradates) that are often detected at concentrations that exceed toxicity thresholds. In response to high frequencies of detections and exceedances of toxicity thresholds, CDPR has taken three respective mitigation actions to reduce concentrations of pesticides of concern. Aniela will provide an overview of the science-drive development of these mitigation actions.
Speaker: Dr. Aniela Burant, California Department of Pesticide Regularion
