Effective May 21, 2014, the Department is expanding the Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego County, Quarantine Boundary. A map of the proposed boundary can be found at http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/lbam/regulation.html#southern, Grid 521. The quarantine boundary is being expanded because additional Light Brown Apple Moths were detected near the expansion area. The quarantine expansion will add 2.34 square miles to the quarantine.
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.
