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.

DPR is accepting comments on the proposed changes to the Air Monitoring Network until June 3, 2016. Comments or questions should be emailed to Pam Wofford at
