Description
Excerpt: Background: In recent years, courts have been faced with the question of whether the Clean Water Act requires an NPDES permit for pesticide applications (e.g. Headwaters, Inc. v. Talent Irrigation District). As a result, public health authorities, natural resource managers, and others who rely on pesticides, have expressed to EPA their concern and confusion about whether they have a legal obligation to obtain an NPDES permit (under the Clean Water Act) when pesticides are applied to or over waters of the United States. They were also concerned about the impact such a requirement would have on their ability to accomplish their missions. The interpretive statement and proposed rule are intended to address these concerns and clarify jurisdictional issues between the Clean Water Act and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) pertaining to the application of pesticides. EPA solicited public comment on an interim statement and guidance in a Federal Register Notice published on August 13, 2003 and received more than 400 comments expressing a wide range of views.
