This morning we provided a tour of the alum application operation and an overview of the project goals to numerous community and agency visitors. It is great to see so much interest in getting Pinto Lake’s water quality back to acceptable conditions available for the community to use. We also received a tour of the Watsonville water resources plant to observe and learn more about their own specific use of alum (in addition to use in lakes, alum is commonly used in the drinking/waste water treatment industry). Meanwhile, the lake application continued all day during cooler and rainy weather. Over 20,000 gallons of alum and buffer were simultaneously applied to a 32 acre portion of the lake.
