California Department of Pesticide Regulation holds public hearings

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) will hold three public hearings in July to discuss the proposed regulation for a statewide notification system for the application of restricted material pesticides. The hearings aim to provide the public with information in advance of pesticide applications.

The hearings are scheduled for:

  • Friday, July 12, in Stanislaus County, tentatively in Turlock
  • Monday, July 15, held virtually on Zoom
  • Tuesday, July 23, in Kern County, tentatively in Wasco

All hearings will take place from 6 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Spanish interpretation will be available at each session.

DPR seeks public participation and feedback on the proposed regulation. 

“Our goal is to protect human health and the environment by ensuring transparency and safety in pesticide use,” a DPR email on the event stated.
