The DEC Honeoye Lake Nutrient Inactivation Pilot Project Alum Treatment started on Tuesday November 1st and was completed on Friday November 18th. Now we are looking forward to seeing how much phosphorus reduction, algae reduction, and water clarity increase we get next summer as a result of the DEC’s Alum Treatment.


A few pictures that I took of the Alum Treatment Application barges are below:
