IS THIS PESTICIDE APPLICATION TO WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES?
Click the picture above to view a power point of some examples of areas that are waters of the US and some that are not. However it is often very difficult to determine in some cases, it is rare that EPA will be able to make a site specific determination as to whether a waterway is a water of the US but the slides provide some general examples that may be helpful, but everyone should err on the side of caution.
