Last week, Pope Resources released to the local media they wouldn’t aerially spray Kitsap County with glyphosate, but this week announced plans to spray more than 14 sites in Eastern Jefferson County in July, August, and September. Astonishingly, Pope’s pesticide bombardment also includes roadsides and an area extremely close to the public water source for Port Townsend!
Pope has replaced the existing, legally-required practice of direct notification to residents near spray zones with a new website for information on their plans. Are citizens supposed to learn about this through divine intervention? Magic? What about those without computers?
Here’s the link to Pope’s website, see for yourself.
And, check out the sites for backpack spraying in Kitsap and their list of deathly chemicals to be used throughout both counties.
