HAB made longer application runs to the far south end of Cedar Lake today and applied 26,500 gallons of alum to a 59 acre zone. We also spent time conducting our daily environmental testing of the lake water. Alum is widely used in lakes and the drinking/wastewater treatment industry due to it’s known safety. In fact, an important consideration in selecting an alum application as the preferred restoration technique for Cedar Lake was it’s long record of safe use. The alum applied to Cedar Lake is the same alum used as a clarifier in drinking water treatment plants and each truckload of alum is tested to ensure it’s purity and that it meets the rigorous drinking water standards. The use of alum is well-suited for lakes such as Cedar and HAB carefully monitors and documents the safe lake conditions during all of their application projects.
