Abstract
  • This summary discusses the risk to human health associated with herbicide application projects to control noxious weeds and poisonous plants on lands administered by the USDA Forest Service in the Northern Region. The Northe!n Region consists of approximately 211.8 million acres of National Forest System (NFS) land in northern Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and western South Dakota. On a typical year, the Forest Service applies from 11,000 to 7,000 pounds of herbicide active ingredient on 5,000 to 10,000 acres of noxious weeds in the Northern Region. These treated areas constitute less than 0.05 percent of the total Forest Service administered land. Public concerns over the possible human health and environmental impacts of pesticide use have prompted the Forest Service to examine the effects of pesticide use. This risk assessment represents part of the analytic process and is intended to be used in conjunction with the site-specific analysis and scoping process as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
