Protecting  Endangered
Species
Interim  Measures
Gordon County, Georgia
   The information in this pamphlet is
   similar to 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 it registers 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
ElPA expects to implement program
requirements beginning in 1991. 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 drop us a line to let us
know whether the information is clear and
correct. Also tell us to what extent
following the recommended measures
would affect your 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 shpws the name of the
  species that each shaded pattern represents
  and 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

  questions:
   Do you intend to use pesticides within
  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.

How To Use This Information
Table Of Pesticide Active Ingredients
1) On the county map, find the specific shading patterns
   that cover the area where you will apply pesticides.

2) Read the shading key for those patterns to identify
   the specific area involved.

3) In the "Table of Pesticide Active Ingredients," locate
   the active ingredients in the pesticide you intend
   to apply.

4) Locate the code to the right of the active ingredient
   name and under the shading patterns that apply
   to you. ,

5) When using the pesticide, you should follow the
   limitations indicated for those codes described under
   "Limitations on Pesticide Use."

6) If you are applying more than one listed active
   ingredient or applying a listed active ingredient in
   an area with more than one shaded pattern (species),
   multiple codes may apply. If so, you  should follow
   the most restrictive limitation.
