Addressing Pesticide Applications Near Schools and Child Care Facilities

Back to Pesticide Use Enforcement

The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) has proposed a regulation to address pesticide applications to agricultural commodities near public K-12 schools and child day care facilities (schoolsites). The proposed regulation prohibits certain pesticide applications within ¼ mile of a schoolsite, and requires notification of other pesticide applications within ¼ mile of a schoolsite. DPR has a separate School IPM Program to address pesticide applications at schoolsites.
