ARJWS will be conducting a small lake treatment on Tuesday July 21st in the

immediate vicinity of the intake structure on Hartwell Lake.  Recent sampling

results indicate a slight increase in MIB (taste and odor producing compounds)

in the 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 Extension.  This small scale treatment is

proactively addressing water in the immediate vicinity of the intake.  ARJWS

will likely need to follow up with a larger scale treatment upstream of the intake

in the next 2-3 weeks.   This treatment has already been coordinated with DHEC,

SCDNR, and Army Corps of Engineers.
