HAB spent the first day of the White Lake project preparing equipment for the application. This included assembly of the barge’s application boom, programing the barge’s computerized dosing system, launching the barge into the lake, setting up on-shore storage tanks and confirming the delivery plan for the alum and buffer. A small restricted work area was established 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 the equipment to monitor the lake’s water quality was prepared for use.
We also enjoyed visits from numerous community members offering their support for the project. We appreciate this, can sense the enthusiasm for the project and are excited to begin the application in morning!
