Present Land Use
Agricultural, low density residential, public recreation

Document Description
BBID is proposing to apply the aquatic herbicides Nautique and Captain to control algae and aquatic weeds in canals within its agricultural service area. The application of these herbicides could result in the discharge of copper to Waters of the United States pursuant to the provisions of an applicable general National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit (NPDES). Compliance with the NPDES permit would be accomplished through conformance with the District's Aquatic Pesticides Application Plan (APAP). Specific measures are included in the APAP to prevent the discharge of copper from treated canals to sensitive habitat.
