Canyon Lake Phosphorus Management Program

Updates on The Alum Treatment Project for Canyon Lake from Aquatechnex

Rapping Up First 2017 Alum Treatment Today

Leave a comment

Aquatechnex will be demobilizing from the lake this afternoon after completing the first Alum treatment of 2017.  The silt load from the recent rains generally carries a considerable phosphorus load.  The objective of early treatment was to get in the water prior to spring Algae Bloom that has been a treatment issue in the past.  Water transparency started the week about 2 inches and was measured at 3 feet today using a Secchi disk.

At this point the second treatment is scheduled for September of this year.  We will be using this page to communicate again as that work gets closer.
