The appeal was from Pesticide Use Permit 116-011a-91/93 authorizing the use of TORDON 22K and Roundup to control noxious weeds in public areas.
The grounds of appeal included concerns regarding inadequate notification of pesticide use, the federal registration process, the potential for drift and leaching of pesticides, and the effects of pesticides on man and the environment. On the basis of evidence presented, the Board dismissed the appeal. The permit was amended to preclude the application of TORDON 22K to areas of coarse gravelly soils. In addition, recommendations concerning permit advertising, soil information, spraying on private land, well location and the present registration status of TORDON 22K were made.
