Mitigating Pesticide Runoff in Urbanized Environments

NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed project is to construct three parallel landscape demonstration exhibits to simulate three alternative household landscapes. The project includes installation of three 576 square foot storage buildings (24' x 24' each for a total of 1,728 square feet) to store equipment, house irrigation controls, and demonstration exhibits located on approximately 0.28 acres of land. Each setting will demonstrate and be monitored for runoff and water conservation of different degrees of Management Practice (MP) implementation. One of the landscapes will include no MP implementation and shall serve as the "traditional" control; the second will include both structural and non-structural MPs for retrofitting landscapes; and the third will demonstrate a newly installed "sustainable landscape" utilizing structural and non-structural MPs. Educational opportunities will be provided to Orange County landscape professionals, homeowners, and developers through hands-on workshops, tours and seminars focusing on specific topics related to integrated pest management, irrigation management, and runoff mitigation.
