We are tentatively scheduled to begin the 2017 Alum treatment for Canyon Lake the week of February 6th, 2017. The tentative plan will be to mobilize equipment to Canyon Lake on Monday February 6th. Alum treatments will begin on the main lake on Tuesday February 7th. We should be done on the main lake Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning, move to the East Bay on Thursday and complete that Thursday and Friday if necessary.
This treatment was to have occurred last week, but water levels and the flo0ding conditions causes us to consider delaying it. There is one water quality testing event that will happen on Thursday of this week that may impact the schedule. Interested parties should check back to this web site on Friday and we will have an update.
This treatment should help with the sediment suspended in the lake to some degree as well. Sediments can carry significant amounts of phosphorus.
