Description

A weekly report of the Lake Apopka Technical Committee, chaired by C. W. Sheffield. The committee was an initiative by Governor Florida Governor Claude R. Kirk, Jr. (1926-2011) to investigate pollution and possible restoration of Lake Apopka, launched in 1967. This report discusses the completion of an experimental algae pond at the Pine Hills Sewage Treatment Plant in Pine Hills, an African-American community in Orlando. This pond would study nutrient removal of wastewater. The report also discusses continuations of the echo sounding project, which sought to accurately map Lake Apopka's bottom, as well as basic maintenance of the fish cribs. Finally, the report notes an upcoming public hearing.
