HAB had a full and productive day of application at Lotus Lake today and applied over 26,000 gallons of alum to a 57 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 Lotus Lake was it’s long record of safe use. The alum applied to Lotus 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 Lotus and HAB carefully monitors and documents the safe lake conditions during all of their application projects.
