Thiobencarb Monitoring Moves to Fifth and Sixth Weeks

Thiobencarb monitoring results report numbers at most sites on May 30 and June 4. The monitoring numbers exceeded the 1.5 µg/L (parts per billion) performance goal at the upper part of Colusa Basin Drain (CBD5) on May 30, and the lower part of the drainage (CBD1) May 30 and June 4. This now counts as seven exceedances of the performance goal into the sixth week of monitoring.
