Pesticide Reduction

The Yamhill Pesticide Stewardship Partnership (PSP) was started in 2007 and is a non-regulatory approach to try and reduce pesticide concentrations in surface water.  Initially, 8 sites were sampled across Yamhill County to assess the need for further monitoring.  The data indicated that Palmer Creek and Cozine Creek showed higher concentrations and frequencies of detection and have since been the focus of local monitoring efforts by state and local partners.
