New Agricultural Regulations on Pesticeds Near Salmon Streams


The EPA has moved to minimize the impact of agricultural pesticides. New regulations include buffer strips of non-agricultural plantings around streams, lower levels of spraying and a requirement to limit spraying during high wind periods and periods of heavy rain. Agricultural pesticides can be lethal for salmon both juveniles and adults. See more information at the Oregonian.
