Sediment Toxicity Management Plan Focus
CROPS: Alfalfa and Tomato, processing
PESTICIDES: Pyrethroids: Lambda-Cyhalothrin, Bifenthrin
OUR GOAL: Zero sediment toxicity exceedances in 2023, 2024, and 2025 to complete the current management plan

Materials from October 2019 - Grower Meeting
Sediment toxicity exceedances were observed in April 2018 and April 2019 at the Ulatis Creek Site with accompanying levels of pyrethroid pesticide products detected in the sediments. Although pyrethroid pesticides are utilized throughout the year for both urban and agricultural land uses, initial outreach has focused on alfalfa and tomato growers because of the timing of the exceedances.
