Diquat dibromide is moderately toxic. It may be fatal to humans if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin in large quantities.
Patricia Bates
01:15:56
I will echo Nurit's comment.
Glenn Bailey
01:16:17
From vendor: Tribune is a nonvolatile herbicidal chemical for use as a general herbicide to control weeds in commercial greenhouses and nurseries; ornamental seed crops (flowers, bulbs, etc. - except in California); landscape, industrial, recreational, commercial, residential, and public areas; turf renovation (all turf areas except commercial sod farms); dormant established turfgrass (bermudagrass, zoysiagrass - nonfood or feed crop); and aquatic areas. Absorption and herbicidal action is usually quite rapid with effects visible in a few days. Tribune controls weeds by interfering with photosynthesis within green plant tissue. Weed plants should be succulent and actively growing for best results. Rinse all spray equipment thoroughly with water after use. Avoid spray drift to crops, ornamentals, and other desirable plants during application, as injury may result. Application to muddy water may result in reduced control. Minimize creating muddy water during application. Use of dirty or muddy water for Tribune

Here is the long detailed info on tribune from EPA, see pages 16 and 17 re: use in water ways and specific use to control water lettuce: https://www3.epa.gov/pesticides/chem_search/ppls/000100-01390-20101130.pdf

more....Application to muddy water may result in reduced control. Minimize creating muddy water during application. Use of dirty or muddy water for Tribune dilution may result in reduced herbicidal activity. Avoid applying under conditions of high wind, water flow, or wave action.Active Ingredients: Diquat dibromide - 37.3%

The water lettuce sprayed is mixed in with the reeds -- it can't be removed manually without destroying the reeds.
NURIT KATZ
01:20:29
@Bill, from what I saw the applicators were not spraying indiscriminantly and were pointing the tool past the reeds applied to the water lettuce.
Patricia Bates
01:20:42
The effort is to protect the reeds to the greatest degree possible
NURIT KATZ
01:23:25
Yes please re: trees. LA Audubon supports the need for ecological impact assessment for tree removal, considering the habitat use of trees as snags etc

I still think we should revisit controlled burns under more ideal conditions than 117 degrees and/or wind
theresa brady
02:07:20
yes native american methods of prescribed burns in winter reduce the fire risk in summer
Patricia Bates
02:08:35
Absolutely controlled burns...especially by model airplane park
