Day 2 – April 4th


Day 2 of the Pinto Lake project was very productive for HAB.  The final two storage tanks were placed in the staging area.  A fence was installed around the staging area to keep the park 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 lake alum dose was performed to confirm the safety of the dose.  Tanks were filled from the delivery trucks and by mid afternoon were ready to begin applying alum to the lake.  About 6,000 gallons of alum and buffer were applied over a 9 acre area of the lake during the late afternoon.  We were excited to get the application underway and look forward to a full day of application tomorrow!
