Here’s a link to this week’s update on the armyworm from in the Sacramento Valley.
Detections of thiobencarb were found at the drinking water intakes for the Cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento on May 27, 28, 29 and 30. Fortunately, the results were j-flagged, which means the numbers were results at or greater than the lab’s method detection limit and less than the reporting limit. Had the results not been j-flagged, we would have a more serious discussion about increasing thiobencarb concentrations in the river.
