In accordance with Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act 451, Section 8316, Mt.

An advance notice will be given at least 48 hours prior to the application using the following two methods:

In addition to the above notification, parents or guardians are entitled to receive the notice by first-class United States mail postmarked at least three days before the application, if they so request. Individuals requesting to be notified by U.S. mail should make a written request which includes: your name, address and district buildings you would like to be informed of prior to pesticide application.
