Upcoming Capstone Projects & Public Demos: Shields and Moody Alum Treatments

Big improvements are coming to two local impaired waterbodies. During the second-to-last week in October, two alum treatments will occur in the District, significantly improving those lakes and more. Come to one of the public field demonstrations going on during each treatment to talk to staff and see the alum treatment in action!

First, Moody Lake will be treated October 20-22. A field demonstration will be held at the Moody Lake Round Barn parking lot on Monday the 21st from 3-5:30pm. This will be the second and last of the split-application treatments for Moody Lake, completing the project, bringing Moody Lake to its long-term water quality goals, and reducing phosphorus loads to downstream Bone Lake.

Later that week, Shields Lake will be treated October 23-25. A field demonstration will be held at Shields Lake Park on the east side of the lake on Wednesday the 23rd from 3-5:30pm. Shields Lake is one year behind Moody’s schedule, meaning this is the first of two split-application treatments for Shields. The second will occur next fall, completing the project, bringing Shields Lake to its long-term water quality trends, and reducing phosphorus loads to downstream Forest Lake.
