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 a review of the committee's research projects by the chairman and John R. Thoman of the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration (FWPCA). The report also discusses a meeting held between the committee members and the north shore farming interests. At this meeting, the committee requested the farms hire an engineering firm to serve as their representative, as well as discussing calculations for the size of a potential dike isolating the farms from the lake. Finally, the report notes the chairman's invitation to examine an aquatic weed pressing machine developed by a Mr. Hiller, of Oakland, California.
