EPA conducted a national stakeholders meeting on December 1, 2010 to solicit input on methods being evaluated by the Water and pesticide Programs with the support of the Office of Research and Development (ORD), to characterize effects from pesticides on fish, other aquatic organisms, and aquatic plants in aquatic ecosystems. This meeting built on the meetings held at EPA Regional Offices around the county in January 2010. Comments solicited during the comment period were considered by EPA in its development of white papers that expanded on the Agency’s initial thinking.
At the public meeting in Washington, DC, EPA presented three white papers that explored the following topics:You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
