An Alum Treatment is scheduled to begin on Spring Lake on Monday, May 4. 
It will take 10 to 14 days to complete the treatment, dependent mostly on weather (windy conditions can slow us down).  The project will be staged at the Spring Lake boat launch and the launch will remain open for public use. 

Why are we doing Alum Treatments? 
In short, we have too much phosphorus in our lakes which causes algae to grow.  Alum treatments grab the phosphorus and don’t allow the algae to use it.  Less algae is not only visually more appealing and better for recreation, it allows more sunlight to reach the lake bottom which is beneficial for plants and fish.  For more information on Alum Treatment, click here.

What else is there to know? 
The main message we need to convey is to please avoid getting in the way of the barge (see attached pics of barge).  The barge follows computerized tracks.  If you are on the lake and see the barge headed your way, it would be appreciated if you could move.  Otherwise, they will have to come back to that location later. It would be most efficient if they could follow their tracks because certain locations in the lake receive different doses of Alum and this all needs to be pre-programmed into the computer. 

Otherwise, pretty much nothing will affect the lake user.  It’s totally fine to be boating, fishing, and eating the fish you catch during the treatment.  If you are hard-core and would like to swim, go for it!  The water is safe for your dog to drink and play in, as well.
