Abstract/Contents:"In fall of 1999, Seattle and King County, announced they would ban the use of most pesticides by July 2000, and then work to reduce all pesticide use by 30%. This applied only to outdoor landscape uses. This was in response to the Chinook salmon being listed under the Endangered Species Act. Seattle's Office of Environmental Management, hired the Washington Toxics Coalition to develop a 3-Tier list of pesticides. At this time, only Tier 1 herbicides and insecticides are targeted. A pesticide with the signal word DANGER on the label, a probable carcinogen or endocrine disruptor, or highly toxic to birds, bees, or aquatic species, is on a Tier 1 list. Tier 1 pesticides can not be used without an approved "exemption" from the city. Municipal Golf of Seattle, which manages the 3 city golf courses contracted with Washington State University to evaluate their existing IPM programs. WSU developed suggestions for the most effective and environmentally sound combination of cultural and pesticide recommendations to allow the city golf courses to handle 100,000 rounds of golf per golf course each year. WSU set up a team of 8 scientists, 4 golf course superintendents and 2 golf and city horticulture supervisors, who evaluated which products to use for specific situations."
