UPDATED March 2012
New regulations impacting mosquito control applications went into effect November 1, 2011. While this is a federal regulation, the implementation will occur at the state level in 44 states.
What this means, in very general terms, is that any discharge directly to or that may reach bodies of water of the U.S. need to be made under a general permit. How this will be implemented will vary by state. The base requirements for those making mosquito control applications in most states are:
- Most states require a Notice of Intent (NOI) to be filed.
- In most states, a specific threshold of application acres must be exceeded before you are required to submit an NOI.
- Most states will require a Pesticide Discharge Management Plan (PDMP) to be on file or submitted.
- In most states, annual reports will need to be submitted OR kept on file.
Again, these outline the general framework of the federal permit that most states used as a basis for tailoring their own NPDES permit. To Further assist, we have created a number of short, 8 minute webinars for states that tend to have a large number of independent, municipal mosquito control programs. These presentations give a very quick review of NPDES and explain the specific requirements for the state.

What goes into a PDMP?
The PDMP requirements can be interpreted multiple ways. So we've put together a GENERAL template to give you an idea of the type of information to be written into your PDMP. The blue text is commentary that describe the purpose or type of content to include in the various sections. Gray shaded type is example text. This is an aid only. Follow your state's PDMP form and requirements.
