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). DPR plans to use the data gathered to evaluate and improve protective measures against pesticide exposure.

After three years of monitoring DPR, proposes continuation of monitoring network.

Members of the Pesticide Registration and Evaluation Committee (PREC) serve as technical and scientific advisors to the project.

  • The air monitoring network has been discussed at several PREC meetings since 2009 (meeting minutes)
