March 16th Meeting on Mosquito Source Reduction BMP

Placer County, Land Owners, Land Managers, and other interested Parties:

The Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District is currently considering adopting Mosquito Reduction Best Management Practices (BMP) that will help to facilitate the implementation of mosquito reduction BMP’s in a manner that balances the needs of landowner or land manager with the mosquito control and public health goals of the District.

The District is seeking comments from agencies, organizations, and landowners that may be affected by the new policies. The intent of these policies is to clarify the responsibilities of both the District and those responsible for any land use that can cause standing water for 72 hours or more.

Among land uses that may cause mosquito development concerns include but are not limited to: flood irrigated crops (e.g. rice, irrigated pastures, corn, orchards), constructed wetlands, waste water treatment ponds, storm water structures both above and below ground, ornamental or farm ponds, dairies, cemetery vases, and unmaintained swimming pools.

You are invited to participate in a public meeting to discuss the proposed policies on Wednesday March 16th at 1:00pm at the Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District Headquarters located at 2021 Opportunity Drive, Roseville, CA 95678.

If you are unable to attend, you many submit written comments by email to Joel Buettner at joelb@placermosquito.org.

Sincerely,

Joel Buettner
District General Manager
