The El Dorado County Department of Agriculture conducts the Pesticide Monitoring Program in cooperation with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. Pesticide use is monitored to protect public health, the environment and to insure worker safety. Department staff enforces state regulations, issue use permits, compile use data and investigate complaints. Education concerning the safe use of pesticides is also an integral part of the program.
