ARJWS will be conducting a small lake treatment on Thursday,

August 27th in the immediate vicinity of the intake structure on

Hartwell Lake.  A peroxide-based algaecide will be applied around

the intake structure, protective boom, and shoreline adjacent to

ARJWS plant property.  The algaecide application will be overseen

by a South Carolina licensed aquatic herbicide applicator from

Clemson University.  This treatment is part of ARJWS’ ongoing

efforts to proactively address adverse taste and odor in source

water.  This treatment has been coordinated with DHEC, SCDNR,

and Army Corps of Engineers.
