Today marked the first full day of application and the lake was busy with many visitors and observers. Over 19,000 gallons of alum and buffer were applied to a 39 acre portion of the lake and the project is off to a very smooth start. A group of over 50 students from the University of Liverpool in England visited the lake to observe and learn about the Pinto Lake restoration project. Dr. Holz had the opportunity to provide an onsite lecture on the role of phosphorus in lakes, internal loading of phosphorus and benefits of alum in reducing phosphorus concentrations and improving water quality. Great group of students with great questions!
