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.
