HAB’s productivity remained high today as we applied over 20,000 gallons of alum and buffer to White Lake. 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 its known safety. In fact, an important consideration in selecting an alum application as the preferred restoration technique for White Lake was its long record of safe use. The alum applied is the same alum used as a clarifier in drinking water treatment plants and each truckload of alum is tested to ensure its purity and that it meets rigorous drinking water standards. The use of alum is well-suited for lakes such as White Lake and HAB carefully monitors and documents the safe lake conditions during all their application projects.
