Proposed New Light Brown Apple Moth Quarantine Boundary – Mendocino County

Proposed New Light Brown Apple Moth Quarantine Boundary – Mendocino County

July 9, 2014

Effective July 8, 2014, the Department is adding the Mendocino County Quarantine Boundary.  A map of the proposed boundary can be found at www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/lbam/regulation.html.  The quarantine boundary is being added because a second adult Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM) was found within three miles and one life cycle of a previous find. The new quarantine will add 14 square miles.

Regulated articles and conditions for intrastate movement under the quarantine can be found at Title 3 California Code of Regulations (CCR) section 3434.  Pursuant to Title 3 CCR section 3434 any interested party or local entity may appeal a quarantine area designation.

Process to Appeal the Proposed New Boundary

The appeal must be submitted to the Department in writing and supported by clear and convincing evidence. The appeal must be filed no later than ten (10) working days from the date of this notification.  During the pending of the appeal, the designated Quarantine Boundary under appeal shall remain in effect.
