LOCATION WHERE SERVICES ARE TO BE PROVIDED: Lake Yale, Lake County, Florida; Coordinates 28.913557, -81.737858
BACKGROUND: Lake Yale is a 4,044 acre eutrophic, shallow lake located in Lake County, Florida with an average water depth of approximately 12 feet. It was determined phosphorus was the limiting nutrient in Lake Yale, and a reduction in internal phosphorus loading from pond sediment would be necessary to improve long-term water quality in Lake Yale. Internal recycling contributes 80% of the estimated annual phosphorus loading and amounts to approximately 17,600 pounds (7,981 kg) annually. The Lake County Water Authority (AUTHORITY) is interested in and would consider new, alternative technologies/treatments to inactivate total phosphorus that are proven to accomplish similar or better results compared to traditional technologies/treatments for sustained long-term water quality benefits.
