U.S. Bureau of Reclamation doubled the flows from the Trinity River reservoir, Trinity Lake, on Tuesday and said it will keep the flows up for seven days to prevent the spread of Ich (pronounced “ick”), a common name for the non-native parasite Ichthyophthirius multifiliis and the disease that it causes.
