MCER NO. 23-16:  PROPOSED DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION REGULATION REGULATION
                          Pesticides – Invasive Species
 
SUMMARY: The proposed executive regulation which amends Executive Regulation 32-01AMII, establishes a list of invasive species that, due to their potential detrimental effect on the environment, a person may apply a registered pesticide to control; notwithstanding the County’s restrictions on the use of registered pesticides on private or County-owned property.  Additional research continues on other species for potential inclusion on this list.  Specifically, a decision on the inclusion or exclusion of Japanese Stiltgrass with regard to lawns is being deferred while more research and evaluation is conducted.  Background information about this effort is available at http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/lawns.
