The Dam Doctor was back again today (Monday) this time concentrating on removing much of the algae from the bottom lake at Bellvista. He was finding the going tough as to do the job properly would require removing all the pond lillies and the other weeds from the lake. This isn’t going to happen for this cleanup.
To clean the lake properly and completely is time consuming (and more expensive). The Dam Doctor has been asked to remove the piles of algae from beside the lake when he is finished. From what was originally anticipated as a two to three day job now will wind up being a four day assignment. Needless to say the cost of this quick cleanup is in the vicinity of several thousand dollars and the algae problem will not be fully solved. Come summer time, it should be all back there again.
In the meantime it will look better but there will be still be some patches of the algae remaining. For a larger view of the photo below left click HERE.
