As many of you have undoubtedly noticed, HAB Aquatic Solutions is back at Cedar Lake and it’s great to be here! HAB conducted the first of five planned alum applications in 2017 and is back to complete the second dose. Phase II began on Tuesday, June 11th and today marks our fourth day of application. This year’s application calls for approximately 316,000 gallons of alum and we anticipate it will take around fourteen days to complete, depending on weather. We already applied 76,000 gallons of alum over 171-acres of the application zone and our productivity has been high through the first three days of the 2019 project.
Feel free to stop by our work area at the boat launch to learn more about the benefits of alum for Cedar Lake and how we apply it to the lake. Also, recall that the boat launch remains open for use during these applications. Check back here for daily updates on our progress and an upcoming discussion on the water quality improvements that have already occurred as a result of our work here in 2017!
