8/8/18: There was a detection of a pesticide (atrazine – 27 ug/L) above the ADWG health limit on 8 August 2018. This was the first detection of atrazine in Lake Trevallyn since sampling for pesticides began in 2015.
An error occurred with the laboratory notification process which resulted in this exceedance not being highlighted, and therefore there was no immediate resample. However, there have been no detections of atrazine in any samples since August 2018.
