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 selection of a site for the pilot nutrient removal project on the Zellwood farmlands. The site chosen was on the Clounts farm, near Hooper Farms Road. The report further discusses the construction of this site. Additionally, the report discusses the rejection of a proposed budget by the Florida Air and Water Pollution Control Commission, which felt it was unable to provide the financial assistance requested. The report also discusses a review of aquatic weed research being conducted in Lake Virginia, to study hydrilla. Finally, the report discusses a meeting held to discuss a proposed comprehensive basin grant from the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration (FWPCA). The East Central Florida Regional Planning Council agreed to apply for this grant.
