EPA is accepting comments until Monday, July 25, on the Endangered Species Act (ESA) Biological Opinion (BiOp) the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) prepared on EPA's NPDES permit for pesticides. The BiOp makes significant revisions to and imposes additional restrictions on EPA's permit. EPA is also in ESA consultation with the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), but that agency has yet to provide a BiOp to EPA. (Contact: Nathan Bowen)
