                Protecting  Endangered
                Species
                Interim  Measures
                Pendleton County, Kentucky	
                rX^he information in this pamphlet is similar to
                 I what the U.S. Environmental Protection
                    Agency (EPA) expects to distribute once our
                Endangered Species Protection Program is in
                effect. The limitations on pesticide use are not
                law at this time, but are being provided now for
                your use in voluntarily protecting endangered and
                threatened species from harm due to pesticide
                use. We encourage you to use this information.
                We also welcome your comments.

                  The Endangered Species Act is intended to
                 protect and promote recovery of animals and
                 plants that are in danger of becoming extinct due
                 to the activities of people. Under the Act, EPA
                 must ensure that use of pesticides itregisters will
                 not result in harm to the species listed as
                 endangered or threatened by the U.S. fish and
                 Wildlife Service, or to habitat critical to those
                 species' survival. To accomplish this, the EPA
                 expects to implement program requirements
                 beginning in 1994. This program will protect
                 endangered and threatened species from harm due
                  to pesticide use.
                    EPA requests your comments regarding the
                  information presented in this publication. Please
                  let us know whether the information is clear and
                  correct. Also tell us to what extent following the
                  recommended measures would affect you typical
                  pesticide use or productivity. This information
                   will be considered by EPA during the final stages
                   of program development.

             About This Publication

              This publication contains a County Map
             showing the Area within the county where
             pesticide use should be limited to protect listed
             species. These areas are identified on the map by
             a shaded pattern. Each shaded pattern
             corresponds to a species in need of protection.
              The Shading Key shows the name of the species
             that each shaded pattern represents and often
             describes the shaded area. The area may be
             described in terms of Township, Range, and
             Section or by giving details about the habitat of
             the species.
               The first column of the "Table of Pesticide
              Active Ingredients" lists the active ingredients for
              which there should be limitations on use to
              protect certain species. The next columns are
              headed by the shaded pattern of the species with
              Codes listed underneath them.
                The Code indicates the specific limitation that
              is necessary to protect the species. The section
              titled Limitations on Pesticide Use explains the
              code.
              Does This Information Apply to You?

                To determine whether this information applies
               to your use of a pesticide, review the questions
               below. The information applies only if you
               answer "yes"to botn questions:
               .   Do you intend to use pesticides within or
                   near the shaded area on the county map?
               .   Are any of the ingredients listed on the front
                   panel of your pesticide product label named
                   in the 'Table of Pesticide Active
                   Ingredients"?
                 If you answer "yes" to both questions, you
                should follow the instructions on "How to Use
                This Information" to determine if you should
                limit use of the pesticide to help protect listed
                species.
                  If you answer "no" to either question, you
                should follow the usage directions on the
                pesticide product label.
