More Positive Results from Thiobencarb Monitoring

Good news continues as the thiobencarb monitoring results hit a peak detection of 1.2 ppb on May 20 at the CBD5 site, which is below the performance goal of 1.5 ppb. Monitoring results at the CBD5 site recovered to 0.79 ppb and 0.73 ppb on May 25 and 27. Sight detections were discovered at the lower Colusa Basin site (CBD1) and Butte Sough. We are halfway through the monitoring season and will continue share monitoring results throughout the season.
