Who we serve

BCMCP serves the 20 cities and towns within Bristol County, Massachusetts.

We reduce mosquito populations through surveillance, water management, biological and chemical controls. All of these methods are performed in an environmentally sensitive manner to minimize potential effects on people, wildlife and the environment.

Commissioners live or work in the county and all decisions are made in a fiscally responsible manner. The Project advocates public outreach and education through cooperative efforts with local officials, school departments and the news media.

BCMCP Commissioners include: Chairman Joseph Barile, Christine A. Fagan, Gregory D. Dorrance, Dr. Henry Vaillancourt

Exclusion Request

Under 333 CMR 13.03 , (Please use the attached) an exclusion request may be made to opt out of pesticide applications performed by a Project, or any other individual making a wide-area application as defined in 333 CMR 13.01. Requests must be submitted to MDAR either via first class mail or through an online form https://www.mass.gov/forms/request-for-exclusion-from-wide-area-application-of-pesticides. Exclusion requests may be submitted at any time during the year, and will go into effect 14 days from the date the request is made. All requests will expire December 31st in the calendar year in which they are received.

Once a request is received by MDAR, it will then be transferred to the Project that covers the region in which the property is located, if applicable. Properties to be exempted will be entered into a database designed to track excluded properties, which will be used by BCMCP during wide-area applications. A list of exclusion requests may also be made available to city and town clerks upon request.

Approved marking method for exclusions:
