See How LCWA’s NuRF is Restoring Lake County’s Lakes!

NuRFFlowDischarge from Lake Apopka is the single largest controllable source of pollution in Lake County. The NuRF utilizes off-line liquid alum injection to remove pollutants flowing out of Lake Apopka into the rest of the Harris Chain of Lakes. Alum was selected because of its reliability and history of successful use in many different water treatment applications.

Once alum combines with pollutants in the water, it forms heavy snowflake-like particles called “floc” which sink to the bottom. To collect the floc, two 9-acre settling ponds were constructed. The alum floc will be pumped from the ponds using a remote control dredge to a centrifuge for dewatering.

The Water Authority conducted a timber removal project on 68 acres of the 1,700-acre Sawgrass Island Preserve. Benefits of selective timber removal:
1. Reduce wildfire threat to preserve and neighbors
2. Promote healthy growth of remaining timber
3. Attract wildlife by providing habitat for deer, turkey and bear
4. Provide more sunlight resulting in growth of forest understory such as wildflowers, grasses and ferns
5. Allow staff to plant longleaf pine of different ages and replace less productive slash pine

The summer months are typically the rainy season in Central Florida, when we would receive most of the rain for the year. Rainfall in June was slightly below average and July has been a relatively dry month so far. When it does rain, it is has been generally localized. A storm may build up and rain itself out without moving too far. It may rain in Eustis or Tavares, but not in Leesburg. It may even be raining on your side of the street and your neighbors could be dry. The next couple of weeks are forecast to remain on the dry side, unless you are fortunate to experience one of the “scattered” rain storms. ... See MoreSee Less
