EAST HARTFORD, CT — SOLitude Lake Management recently tested the water quality at a site in North Carolina. The body of water revealed to be less than ideal conditions. With that in mind, SOLitude teamed up with BioSafe Systems for a lime application which would help increase alkalinity, hardness and buffer the pH in water systems. The ideal result would be the body of water would turn into a healthier, aquatic ecosystem.
BioSafe Systems’ Calcis® Liquid Calcium Carbonate, an alternative to aggregate the lime, minimized labor costs and expedited the application. The smaller volume of the material, less labor and equipment helped the lake management team complete the application in one day.
The Calcis was dispensed into the water via direct injection with a prop wash, used to help agitate the treatment area and provide better coverage. The results lined up with both the client and lake management teams’ expectations – Calcis improved the water quality and restored balance.
