Nevada Irrigation District Looking at Alternatives to Roundup
The Nevada Irrigation District has been looking at alternatives to Roundup, a popular herbicide, for almost two years — ever since the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment placed glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weed killer, on the Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer.

The district is finishing a two-year pilot project designed to look at Roundup alternatives and is looking to make any potential changes to its program for next year. This year, the district’s weed management program listed Roundup for use during the off-irrigation season — Oct. 16 to March 30 — for canal berms and access roads; the banks and bottoms of de-watered canals, down to the high water mark; and at industrial sites such as tanks and pump sites, water treatment facilities, power plants and dam faces. Roundup also was listed for year-round use for terrestrial, non-aquatic weeds.

10 Years Later: Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill - Researchers at University of South Florida College of Marine Sciences studied the impact the Deepwater Horizon explosion and ensuing oil spill continue to have on gulf fisheries. They found a 50 – 80% fish population decrease near the blow site. And, of the more than 2,500 fish sampled, every single one was found to have some level of oil pollution; the highest levels of concentrations were detected in yellowfin tuna, golden tilefish and red drum.
