Jordan Lake Circulator Demo

Jordan Lake Nutrient Mitigation Demonstration Project

This demonstration project was conducted in Jordan Lake at the Haw River and Morgan Creek arms (see map). These two areas of Jordan Lake have historically exhibited effects of excess nutrient inputs including elevated chlorophyll a and pH. Thirty-six in-lake water circulators (SolarBees ®) were deployed to determine their effectiveness at improving water quality in those areas of the lake.  Water quality monitoring occurred on a monthly basis and the project duration extended from July 2014 to June 2016.  More information on DWR monitoring results is available here.  Historical water quality data from Jordan lake can be found in annual reports located at the DWR Falls Lake and Jordan Lake Monitoring page
