Encouraging Results from Thiobencarb Monitoring

Encouraging Results from Thiobencarb Monitoring

Good news! The thiobencarb monitoring results have been excellent and mostly non-detect through May 11. Monitoring is a weekly event with more recent results pending. The reporting shows two detections (<1.0 ppb) at the upper Colusa Basin site (CBD5), which are not a concern. We will continue to relay positive information on this important area, as well as any exceedances.
