Use the table below to determine how far workers and other people must stay from the application. 100 feet in all directions Spray from more than one foot off the ground (or planting medium) and with medium or larger droplet size25 feet in all directional other application types No AEZ required Effective January 2, 2017, agricultural employers must not allow workers or other people to enter or be in the AEZ during an application within the boundaries of their establishment.
Handlers cannot begin an application if anyone is inside the AEZ within the boundaries of the agricultural establishment. If people are in the AEZ within the boundaries of the establishment, the handler cannot resume an application until they move.
If you are an agricultural employer, the AEZ requirement goes into effect January 2, 2017. Starting then, employers must keep all workers and people out of the AEZ on their agricultural property.
If you are a handler, you should work with the agricultural employer to help them comply with their requirement to keep workers and other people out of the AEZ on the property starting January 2, 2017. After January 2, 2018, handlers must suspend applications as soon as workers or other people enter the AEZ.
The revised AEZ requirements improve enforceability for state regulators and reduce regulatory burdens for farmers. The final rule maintains the primary WPS protection for farmworkers, handlers, and other individuals in areas where pesticide applications are taking place by prohibiting applicators from using a pesticide in a manner that would result in sprays contacting unprotected individuals either directly or through drift.
AEZ requirements are limited to within the boundaries of the agricultural establishment, removing off-farm responsibilities that were proving difficult for state regulators to enforce. This will allow farm owners and their immediate family members to decide whether to stay in their homes or other enclosed structures on their property during certain pesticide applications, rather than compelling them to leave even when they feel safe remaining inside.
The videos and documents below provide general guidance to help you comply with the AEZ requirements of the WPS for agricultural pesticides, 40 CFR part 170, as amended in 2015. Then, you must evaluate the situation and conditions and determine if you can resume the application without contacting anyone with the pesticide, either directly or through drift.

Employees of state agencies are resident in the Zone on a temporary basis.
Time zone UTC+2 (GET) • Summer (DST) UTC+3 (BEST)Website daze.gov.UA Satellite image of the reactor and surrounding area in April 2009The ExclusionZone covers an area of approximately 2,600 km 2 (1,000 sq mi) in Ukraine immediately surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant where radioactive contamination from nuclear fallout is highest and public access and in habitation are restricted. In February 2019 it was revealed that talks have been underway to redraw the boundaries of the ExclusionZone to reflect the declining radioactivity of the Zone's outer areas.
The ExclusionZone's purpose is to restrict access to hazardous areas, reduce the spread of radiological contamination, and conduct radiological and ecological monitoring activities. Today, the ExclusionZone is one of the most radioactively contaminated areas in the world and draws significant scientific interest for the high levels of radiation exposure in the environment, as well as increasing interest from tourists.
Historically and geographically, the zone is the heartland of the Poles region. This predominantly rural woodland and marshland area was once home to 120,000 people living in the cities of Chernobyl and Pripyat as well as 187 smaller communities, but is now mostly uninhabited.
All settlements remain designated on geographic maps but marked as . The woodland in the area around Pripyat was a focal point of partisan resistance during the Second World War, which allowed evacuated residents to evade guards and return into the woods.
The tree fell down due to age in 1996 and a memorial now stands at its location. 10-kilometre and 30-kilometre Zones The ExclusionZone was established on 2 May 1986 (1986-05-02) soon after the Chernobyl disaster, when a Soviet government commission headed by Nikolai Rothko :4 decided on a “rather arbitrary” :161 area of a 30-kilometre (19 mi) radius from Reactor 4 as the designated evacuation area.
The 30 km Zone was initially divided into three subzones: the area immediately adjacent to Reactor 4, an area of approximately 10 km (6 mi) radius from the reactor, and the remaining 30 km zone. Protective clothing and available facilities varied between these subzones.
Special permission for access and full military control was put in place in later 1986. In November 1986, control over activities in the zone was given to the new production association Combined.
Based in the evacuated city of Chernobyl, the association's responsibility was to operate the power plant, decontaminate the 30 km zone, supply materials and goods to the zone, and construct housing outside the new town of Slavutych for the power plant personnel and their families. In March 1989, a “Safe Living Concept” was created for people living in contaminated zones beyond the ExclusionZone in Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia.
After independence Radiation level in 1996, according to map from CIA handbook In February 1991, the law On The Legal Status of the Territory Exposed to the Radioactive Contamination resulting from the Ch NPP Accident was passed, updating the borders of the ExclusionZone and defining obligatory and voluntary resettlement areas, and areas for enhanced monitoring. The borders were based on soil deposits of strontium-90, caesium-137, and plutonium as well as the calculated dose rate (sieverts/h) as identified by the National Commission for Radiation Protection of Ukraine.
Responsibility for monitoring and coordination of activities in the ExclusionZone was given to the Ministry of Chernobyl Affairs. In-depth studies were conducted from 1992 to 93, culminating the updating of the 1991 law followed by further evacuations from the Poles area.
A number of evacuation zones were determined: the ExclusionZone “, the Zone of Absolute (Mandatory) Resettlement” and the Zone of Guaranteed Voluntary Resettlement”, as well as many areas throughout Ukraine designated as areas for radiation monitoring. After Ukrainian Independence, funding for the policing and protection of the zone was initially limited, resulting in even further settling by Samoset (returnees) and other illegal intrusion.
In 1997, the areas of Police and Narodychi, which had been evacuated, were added to the existing area of the ExclusionZone, and the zone now encompasses the exclusion zone and parts of the zone of Absolute (Mandatory) Resettlement of an area of approximately 2,600 km 2 (1,000 sq mi). On 15 December 2000, all nuclear power production at the power plant ceased after an official ceremony with then President Leonid Kuchen when the last remaining operational reactor, number 3, was shut down.
Power for the ongoing decommissioning work and the zone is now provided by a newly built The ExclusionZone is now evacuated save for a few Samoset (returnees or self settlers).
Areas outside the ExclusionZone designated for voluntary resettlement continue Abandoned living blocks in Pripyat. The 30 km zone is estimated to be home to 197 Samoset living in 11 villages as well as the town of Chernobyl.
These residents are senior citizens, with an average age of 63. After repeated attempts at expulsion, the authorities have accepted their presence and allowed them to stay with limited supporting services.
Residence is now informally permitted by the Ukrainian government. Approximately 3,000 people work in the Zone of Alienation on various tasks, such as the construction of the New Safe Confinement, the ongoing decommissioning of the reactors, and assessment and monitoring of the conditions in the zone.
Employees donor live inside the zone, but work shifts there. The duration of shifts is counted strictly for reasons involving pension and healthcare.
Everyone employed in the Zone is monitored for internal bioaccumulation of radioactive elements. Its amenities include administrative buildings, general stores, a canteen, a hotel, and a bus station.
Unlike other areas within the ExclusionZone, Chernobyl town is actively maintained by workers, such as lawn areas being mowed and autumn leaves being collected. Daily trips from Kyiv offered by multiple companies.
In addition, multiple-day excursions can be easily arranged with Ukrainian tour operators. Most overnight tourists stay in a hotel within the town of Chernobyl, which is located within the ExclusionZone.
According to an exclusion area tour guide, as of 2017, there are approximately 50 licensed exclusion area tour guides in total working for approximately nine companies. Visitors must present their passports when entering the ExclusionZone, and are screened for radiation when exiting both at the 10 km checkpoint and at the 30 km checkpoint.
The ExclusionZone can also be entered if an application is made directly to the zone administration department. Some evacuated residents of Pripyat have established a remembrance tradition, which includes annual visits to former homes and schools.
According to Chernobyl disaster liquidators, the radiation levels here are “well below the level across the zone “, a fact that president of the Ukrainian Chernobyl Union Yury Andean considers miraculous. The Chernobyl ExclusionZone has been accessible to interested parties such as scientists and journalists since the zone was created.
An early example was Elena Fixative's online account of her alleged solo bike ride through the zone. This gained her Internet fame, but was later alleged to be fictional, as a guide claimed Fixative was part of an official tour group.
Regardless, her story drew the attention of millions to the nuclear catastrophe. After Fixative's visit in 2004, a number of papers such as The Guardian and The New York Times began to produce reports on tours to the zone.
Tourism to the area became more common after Pripyat was featured in popular video games S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl and Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
An article in the penal code of Ukraine was specially introduced, and horse patrols were added to protect the zone's perimeter. In 2012, journalist Andrew Blackwell published Visit Sunny Chernobyl: And Other Adventures in the World's Most Polluted Places.
Blackwell recounts his visit to the ExclusionZone, when a guide and driver took him through the zone and to the reactor site. On 14 April 2013, the 32nd episode of the wildlife documentary TV program River Monsters (Atomic Assassin, Season 5, Episode 1) was broadcast featuring the host Jeremy Wade catching a well catfish in the cooling pools of the Chernobyl power plant, at the heart of the ExclusionZone.
On 16 February 2014, an episode of the British motoring TV program Top Gear was broadcast featuring two of the presenters, Jeremy Clarkson and James May, driving into the ExclusionZone. A portion of the finale of the Netflix documentary Our Planet, released in 2019, was filmed in the ExclusionZone.
The area was used as the primary example of how quickly an ecosystem can recover and thrive in the absence of human interference. In 2019, Chernobyl Spirit Company released Atomic Vodka, the first consumer product made from materials grown and cultivated in the exclusion zone.
The poaching of game, illegal logging, and metal salvage have been problems within the zone. Despite police control, intruders started infiltrating the perimeter to remove potentially contaminated materials, from televisions to toilet seats, especially in Pripyat, where the residents of about 30 high-rise apartment buildings had to leave all of their belongings behind.
In 2007, the Ukrainian government adopted more severe criminal and administrative penalties for illegal activities in the alienation zone, as well as reinforced units assigned to these tasks. The population of Przewalski's horse, introduced to the ExclusionZone in 1998, has reportedly fallen since 2005, due to poaching.
Plant personnel, 3,800 workers as of 2009 , reside primarily in Slavutych, a specially-built remote city in Kyiv Oblast outside the ExclusionZone, 45 kilometers (28 mi) east of the accident site. Development and recovery projects The Chernobyl ExclusionZone is an environmental recovery area, with efforts devoted to remediation and safeguarding of the reactor site.
At the same time, projects for wider economic and social revival of the territories around the disaster zone have been envisioned or implemented. In November 2007 the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling for “recovery and sustainable development” of the areas affected by the Chernobyl accident.
Commenting on the issue, UN Development Program officials mentioned the plans to achieve “self-reliance” of the local population, “agriculture revival” and development of ecotourism. However, it is not clear whether such plans, made by the UN and Yushchenko, deal with the zone of alienation proper, or only with the other three zones around the disaster site where contamination is less intense and restrictions on the population are looser (such as the district of Narodychi in Zhytomyr ska Oblast).
Tourists are accompanied by tour guides at all times and are not able to wander too far on their own due to the presence of several radioactive “hot spots”. Pripyat was deemed safe for tourists to visit for a short period of time in the late 2010s, although certain precautions must be taken.
In 2016, the Ukrainian government declared the part of the exclusion zone on its territory a radiological and environmental biosphere reserve. It was reported in 2016 that “A heavily contaminated area within a 10-kilometer radius” of the plant would be used for the storage of nuclear waste.
The IDEA carried out a feasibility study in 2018 to assess the prospect of expanding the local waste management infrastructure. In 2017, three companies were reported developing plans for solar farms within the Chernobyl ExclusionZone.
The high feed-in tariffs offered, the availability of land, and easy access to transmission lines (which formerly ran to the nuclear power station) have all been noted as beneficial to siting a solar farming. The solar plant began operations in October 2018.
In 2019, following a three-year research project into the transfer of radioactivity to crops grown in the exclusion zone conducted by scientists from UK and Ukrainian universities, one bottle of vodka using grain from the zone was produced. The vodka did not contain abnormal levels of radiation because of the distillation process.
The researchers consider the production of vodka, and its sales profits, a means to aid economic recovery of the communities most adversely affected by the disaster. Spots of hyperintensive pollution were created first by wind and rain spreading radioactive dust at the time of the accident, and subsequently by numerous burial sites for various material and equipment used in decontamination.
Zone authorities pay attention to protecting such spots from tourists, scrap hunters and wildfires, but admit that some dangerous burial sites remain unmapped, and only recorded in the memories of the (aging) Chernobyl liquidators. A wild fox being fed by a tourist in the Chernobyl ExclusionZone There has been an ongoing scientific debate about the extent to which flora and fauna of the zone were affected by the radioactive contamination that followed the accident.
Near the facility, a dense cloud of radioactive dust killed off a large area of Scots pine trees; the rusty orange color of the dead trees led to the nickname The Red Forest ( ). The Red Forest was among the world's most radioactive places; to reduce the hazard, the Red Forest was bulldozed and the highly irradiated wood was buried, though the soil continues to emit significant radiation.
Horses in Chernobyl ExclusionZone Cases of mutant deformity in animals of the zone include partial albinism and other external malformations in swallows and insect mutations. A reduction in the density and the abundance of animals in highly radioactively contaminated areas has been reported for several taxa, including birds, insects and spiders, and mammals.
Scientists such as Andes Paper Miller (University of Paris-Sud) and Timothy Rousseau (University of South Carolina) report that birds and smaller animals such as voles may be particularly affected by radioactivity. However, some of their research has been criticized as flawed, and Miller has faced charges of misconduct.
More recently the populations of large mammals have increased due to significant reduction of human interference. The populations of traditional Polynesian animals (such as wolves, badger, wild boar, roe deer, white-tailed eagle, black stork, western marsh harrier, short-eared owl, red deer, moose, great egret, whooper swan, the least weasel, Common Kestrel, and beaver) have multiplied enormously and begun expanding outside the zone.
The zone is considered as a classic example of an involuntary park. The return of wolves and other animals to the area is being studied by scientists such as Marina Syria (Ukraine's National Academy of Sciences), Sergey Geisha (Chernobyl Center in Ukraine), and Jim Beasley (University of Georgia).
Camera traps have been installed and are used to record the presence of species. Studies of wolves, which are concentrated in higher-radiation areas near the center of the exclusion zone, may enable researchers to better assess relationships between radiation levels, animal health, and population dynamics.
Some accounts refer to the reappearance of extremely rare native lynx, and there are videos of brown bears and their cubs, an animal not seen in the area for more than a century. Special game warden units are organized to protect and control them.
No scientific study has been conducted on the population dynamics of these species. The rivers and lakes of the zone pose a significant threat of spreading polluted silt during spring floods.
Yoschenko et al. reported on the possibility of increased mobility of cesium, strontium, and plutonium due to grass and forest fires. Grass and forest fires have happened inside the contaminated zone, releasing radioactive fallout into the atmosphere.
This resulted in a great increase in the levels of caesium-137 in airborne dust. On the 4th of April 2020, a fire broke in the Zone, on at least 20 hectares of Ukrainian forests.
Approximately 90 firefighters were deployed to extinguish the blaze, as well as a helicopter and two aircraft. Radiation is still present in these forests making firefighting more difficult; authorities stated that there was no danger to surrounding population.
Though the immediate and subsequent effects were devastating, the area quickly recovered and is today seen as very healthy. The lack of people in the area is another factor that has been named as helping to increase the biodiversity of the ExclusionZone in the years since the disaster.
In the aftermath of the disaster, radioactive contamination in the air had a decidedly negative effect on the fauna, vegetation, rivers, lakes, and groundwater of the area. The radiation resulted in deaths among coniferous plants, soil invertebrates, and mammals, as well as a decline in reproductive numbers among both plants and animals.
The surrounding forest was covered in radioactive particles, resulting in the death of 400 hectares of the most immediate pine trees, though radiation damage can be found in an area of tens of thousands of hectares. An additional concern is that as the dead trees in this Red Forest (named for the color of the dead pines) decay, contamination is leaking into the groundwater.
In fact, the ecosystem around the power plant “supports more life than before”. The industrial, transport, and residential infrastructure has been largely crumbling since the 1986 evacuation.
River ships and barges lie in the abandoned port of Chernobyl. The port can easily be seen in satellite images of the area.
The Jupiter Factory, one of the largest buildings in the zone, was in use until 1996 but has since been abandoned and its condition is deteriorating. However, the infrastructure immediately used by the existing nuclear-related installations is maintained and developed, such as the railway link to the outside world from the Semykhody station used by the power plant.
“The Russian Woodpecker “) is a former Soviet military installation relatively close to the power plant, consisting of a gigantic transmitter and receiver belonging to the Duga-1over-the-horizon radar system. Located 2 km (1.2 mi) from the surface area of Chernobyl-2 is a large underground complex that was used for anti-missile defense, space surveillance and communication, and research.
Immediately after the explosion on 26 April 1986, Russian photographer Igor Boston (1936–2015) photographed and reported on the event, getting the first pictures from the air, then for the next 20 years he continued visiting the area to document the political and personal stories of those impacted by the disaster, publishing a book of photos Chernobyl: confessions of a reporter. In 1993, the official video for Pink Floyd's Marooned features scenes of the town of Pripyat.
In an opening scene of the 1998 film Godzilla, the main character, scientist Nick Tatopoulos, is in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, researching the effects of environmental radiation on earthworms. British photographer John Darrell, was among the first foreigners to photograph within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for three weeks in late 1999, including in Pripyat, in numerous villages, a landfill site, and people continuing to live within the Zone.
This resulted in an exhibition and book Legacy: Photographs inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Visits have since been made by numerous other documentary and art photographers.
In a 2014 episode of Top Gear, the hosts were challenged with making their cars run out of fuel before they could reach the Exclusion Zone. A large fraction of Martin Cruz Smith's 2004 crime novel Wolves Eat Dogs (the fifth in his series starring Russian detective Already Reno) is set in the Exclusion Zone.
The 2005 horror film Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis opening scene takes place within Chernobyl, where canisters of the zombie chemical 2-4-5 Toxin are found to be held. , released in 2007, recreates parts of the zone from source photographs and in-person visits (bridges, railways, buildings, compounds, abandoned vehicles), albeit taking some artistic license regarding the geography of the Zone for gameplay reasons.
In the 2007 video game Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, two missions, i.e. “All Grilled Up” and “One Shot, One Kill” take place in Pripyat. A 2009 episode of Destination Truth depicts Josh Gates and the Destination Truth team exploring the ruins of Pripyat for signs of paranormal activity.
In 2011, Guillaume Herbart and Bruno Mass created the web documentary La Zone, funded by CNC, Lemonade.fr and Agar Films. The documentary explores the communities and individuals that still inhabit or visit the Exclusion Zone.
The PBS program Nature aired on 19 October 2011, its documentary Radioactive Wolves which explores the return to nature which has occurred in the Exclusion Zone among wolves and other wildlife. In the 2011 film Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Chernobyl is depicted when the autobots investigate suspected alien activity.
In his short film the filmmaker tells the drama of the orphan Andrew, which is sent into the nuclear environment by his brother Atom in order to ransack the abandoned homes. The 2012 film Chernobyl Diaries is set in the Exclusion Zone.
The horror movie follows a tour group that become stranded in Pripyat, and their encounters with creatures mutated by radioactive exposure. The 2015 documentary The Russian Woodpecker, which won the Grand Jury Prize for World Documentary at the Sun dance Film Festival, has extensive footage from the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and focuses on a conspiracy theory behind the disaster and the nearby Dug radar installation.
Marian Kamysh's novel about Chernobyl illegal trips A Stroll to the Zone was praised by reviewers as the most interesting literature debut in Ukraine. The 2015 documentary The Babushkas Of Chernobyl directed by Anne Bogart and Holly Morris focuses on elderly residents who remain in the Exclusion Zone.
These people, a majority of whom are women, are self-sufficient farmers who receive routine visits from officials to check on their health and radiation levels. The five-part HBO miniseries Chernobyl was aired in 2019, dramatizing the events of the explosion and relief efforts after the fact.
The 2019 Spin tires Chernobyl video game has players driving around the Exclusion Zone behind the wheel of a Russian truck to hunt down prize logging sites, while also trying to avoid getting blasted by radiation. The power plant, Pripyat, Red Forest, Gupta Lake and the Dug Radar have all been recreated, so players can also go on a sightseeing tour from the truck.
