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.
