Why is San José using IPM at public parks?
The Parks Division is implementing IPM to reduce the use of chemicals in Parks. Minimizing chemical runoff is important everywhere, but especially in parks because they are often close to creeks. Through the reduction of chemicals, there is less exposure to the public, City employees, the ecosystem, and to local waterways.
