Air Monitoring Network
Sign up to receive e-mail updates on DPR’s air monitoring network.
The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) has established a monitoring network to sample ambient air for multiple pesticides in three communities on a regular schedule. Monitoring began in February 2011 (in Ripon, Shafter and Salinas) and will last for at least two years. DPR plans to use the data gathered to evaluate and improve protective measures against pesticide exposure.
