CANAL TREATMENT SCHEDULED

West Extension Irrigation District will be applying the aquatic herbicide “Argos” (liquid chelated copper) in its main canal over 2 days::

Wednesday,          July 21, 2021 (morning)          Upper Canal (Phase 1 Inlet (East of Power Line Road) to Division)

Wednesday,          July 21, 2021 (afternoon)       Middle Canal (Division to I-84)

Thursday,              July 22, 2021  (morning)         Boardman Canal (siphon to end)

Treatments will start at approximately 6 am and last for 6 hours. 

Argos targets algae and is applied at the rate of 1 ppm for a 6 hour set.  This low rate of application means there are no holding restrictions on the water.  This compares to the Copper Sulfate Crystals which are applied at a 5-6 ppm rate and have lengthy holding time.
