More Positive Results from Thiobencarb Monitoring

The thiobencarb monitoring results continue to be excellent  through May 20. Reporting shows three detections (<1.0 ppb) at the upper Colusa Basin site (CBD5) starting May 6 and going down by May 18. The monitoring site had a peak detection of 1.2 ppb on May 20, which is below the performance goal of 1.5 ppb. We will continue to share monitoring results throughout the season.
