Lake Treatment Plan

Based on field and lab observations, ARJWS will be conducting an algaecide treatment in Lake Hartwell upstream of and around the raw water intake structure on October 5, 2016.  The algaecide application will be conducted by Aquaservices, Inc., a South Carolina certified applicator of aquatic herbicides.  This algaecide application is part of ARJWS’ ongoing efforts to reduce the presence of taste and odor causing algae.  This upcoming treatment has already been coordinated with DHEC, SCDNR, and ArmyCorps of Engineers. For a copy of the Treatment Plan, Click here
