The proposed action will identify pesticides that have a high potential to contaminate surface water in outdoor non-agricultural settings, and will require pesticide applicators, such as landscape professionals to help minimize the contamination by following the new regulations.
In places other than California, pest management professionals may continue to use products in accordance with the directions on the label of the product being applied (including ''old label'' directions), but in California the regulations supersede the label, meaning that all products must be used in accordance with the new regulations on and after the July 19th date, irrespective of the label language.
