Equipment Mobilization and First Day of Application!

HAB spent Sunday afternoon and Monday morning preparing equipment for the Spring Lake alum application project. This included assembly of the barge’s application boom, launching the barge into the lake, setting up on-shore storage tanks and confirming the delivery plan for the alum. A construction fence was installed around the staging area to keep lake users at a safe distance from the alum storage and barge filling locations. Final calibrations of the barge computer system were conducted and a jar test of the alum dose was performed to confirm the intended effect of the alum. Tanks were filled from the delivery trucks and by mid-morning we began applying alum to the lake. The lake and boat ramp will remain open for the duration of the project. We were excited to get the application underway and look forward to a full day of application tomorrow!
