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 lists the various research projects being undertaken by the committee during the summer of 1968. This research includes nutrient leaching from citrus groves, nutrients in rainwater, updated biological sampling, silt-drying techniques, construction of a nutrient removal pilot plant on the North Shore farmlands, flocculation and aeration of silt, aquatic plants, dredging, and expanded sampling of farm discharge. These projects are being constructed with the help of students from various colleges. Additionally, the report discusses the attendance by the chairman of the Hyacinth Control Society's annual meeting.
