Letter to California Department of Pesticide Regulation about neonicotinoid contamination of surface water

"We, the undersigned scientists, are writing to express our concerns about neonicotinoid contamination in surface waters. Many studies have now identified significant risks that neonicotinoids pose to terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. We are bringing this issue to the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) because imidacloprid is already found in California waterways at levels that exceed the freshwater invertebrate aquatic life benchmarks and could harm or kill many sensitive aquatic invertebrate species."
