pesticide handling, state handling regualtions, south dakota
New state pesticide handling regulations were implemented May 1, 1995, which are designed to reduce the risk of contamination from pesticide use and handling operations. The new regulation, ARSD 12:56:17, defines an “Operational Area” as an area where pesticides are transferred, mixed, handled, etc. after the container’s seal has been broken or where pesticides are rinsed from containers or other equipment. “Operational Area Containment” is a system designed to collect and hold, for reuse or disposal, pesticides which are spilled, rinsed or otherwise lost at the operational area.
