The City Council is expected to endorse a letter today asking the state to halt the use of the toxic pesticide endosulfan in farmlands along the San Diego Creek drainage basin. The request is a result of the Newport Beach Harbor Quality Committee's discovery earlier this year that increased concentrations of the chemical have been found in shellfish in Newport Bay and in San Diego Creek, which drains into the bay.

Agricultural officials announced Tuesday they have banned the use of a pesticide on a large portion of Orange County farmland because a toxic chemical is seeping into Newport Bay and contaminating shellfish. State officials also said they are considering a broader ban in other areas of California where the pesticide is endangering marine life. The restriction on endosulfan in Orange County replaces a temporary emergency ban imposed in April by the county agricultural commissioner's office.

Tough new restrictions will be imposed countywide on use of the pesticide endosulfan because of concentrations of the chemical found in shellfish in the San Diego Creek and Newport Bay, the county chief deputy agriculture commissioner said Thursday. The controls, which a state official called "among the tightest restrictions anywhere in the state," will prohibit use of the pesticide in Orange County fields where there is measurable irrigation runoff into flowing or fish-bearing waters.

From California's Central Valley to Florida's strawberry fields, tens of thousands of children work in a sea of toxic chemicals whose long-term health effects are virtually unknown. In California's onion fields, farm workers, including children, are exposed to methyl parathion, a potent nerve toxin. Among Florida's strawberry fields, they encounter captan, a probable human carcinogen.
