Pesticide reductions pushed

IN THIS ARTICLE

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency finalized approval of a revision to the California State Implementation Plan on July 7 in response to a request from the California Air Resources Board to gradually reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds from pesticides in Ventura County.
 

The California Air Resources Board had requested that the EPA revise the  Ventura County portion of its California State Implementation Plan for smog because the state was unable to achieve by 2005 all of the pesticide volatile organic compound reductions it had committed to. The California Air Resources Board believes it will be able to achieve the full commitment by 2012.
