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.
