Aquatechnex was selected as the most qualified respondent to the RFP to assist in the management of water quality at Canyon Lake in Southern California. This 450 acre lake has been listed as impaired because of phosphorus levels and the resulting water quality issues. Total Daily Maximum Loads or TMDL’s have been established and various agencies are responsible for removing phosphorus from the lake over the next 10 years.
Phosphorus sequestering technologies will be applied to the lake in September and February of each year. The material will form a floc and settle through the water column grabbing available phosphorus and reducing the carrying capacity of the lake to produce problem algae growth. These applications will help these agencies meet their numeric targets for phosphorus reduction.
