We want to notify industry members that we recently updated the Geographic Information System (GIS) Map on the CCM website to include layers for fruit flies and HLB quarantines in California. The map is updated as new information on quarantines is made available from the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). This map is an interactive tool that we hope you will use to understand how quarantines may affect your citrus operations.
The map also allows you to see where citrus is located throughout the state along with legislative districts, Groundwater Sustainability Agency’s (GSA’s), water districts and ACP regional quarantine zones for bulk citrus. Through the layer list, users can select and overlay the maps of their choice to gain a better understanding of the specific area where their citrus is located.
Internally, CCM will be using the updated quarantine and legislative districts layers to keep lawmakers with quarantines in their districts informed of the dangers these pests and diseases pose to our industry and the impact they could have on their local economies.
As a reminder, the map can be accessed through the Members Only page of the CCM website.
