Beyond Toxics and our Dec. 15th report is mentioned in this article:
Fed To Require Strengthened State Protection from Non-point Pesticide Pollution (Dec. 23, 2013) news report derived from Oregonian article and this Beyond Pesticides blog | (federal register notice referenced; EPA and NOAA’s proposed disapproval action of Oregon’s Coastal Nonpoint Program)

Coming on the heels of the Dec. 15th release of our forestry pesticides report, good news from Washington, DC…Oregonian article:

“Federal regulators are proposing to overturn the state of Oregon’s program for reducing coastal pollution runoff, saying while they see progress, the state is inadequately protecting streams that provide coho salmon habitat and drinking water….
The federal agencies say the state needs to reduce pollution from logging activities past and present. Oregon needs to protect small and medium-sized streams, address landslide risks and reduce runoff from logging roads built before modern construction standards were in place, the agencies say.”
