Matilija arundo project update

Last update on Arundo was last year's public meeting.

County contractors began followup treatment this spring, using backpack sprayers to retreat the sprouting plant throughout the project area.

This photo is the view from the road looking out into the sediment-filled reservoir area above Matilija Dam. Re-sprouting Arundo is evident in the foreground, as well as the large clump in the background. This is typical throughout the area. On this day, workers were half a mile downstream.
