Description Forest practices, including the use of pesticides, are conducted in accordance with Best Management Practices (BMPs) established in the Washington Forest Practices Rules and Regulations. This project was undertaken to evaluate BMP effectiveness through intensive field monitoring of forest pesticide applications. Determination of BMP effectiveness is based on interpretation of various provisions of state water quality standards, forest practice rules, pesticide registration labels issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Department of Agriculture pesticide regulations.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
