Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Friends of Green Lake invite the community to a meeting to learn about the alum treatment planned for Green Lake in the spring of 2016. At this meeting Seattle Parks and Recreation and Herrera Environmental consultants will present information about the implementation of the alum treatment and answer community questions.

The 2016 alum treatment is intended to reduce phosphorus levels in the lake, limiting cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) blooms and improving recreational use of the lake. Previous lake-wide alum applications in 1991 and 2004 effectively limited algae blooms and improved water quality. In order to preserve the health and safety of Green Lake, Seattle Parks and Recreation is treating the lake with alum again this spring.

This meeting is an opportunity to learn more about the alum treatment. Seattle Parks and Recreation would like to thank the Friends of Green Lake for their continued stewardship of the lake. Friends of Green Lake (FOGL) is a non-profit group in Seattle, Washington, whose mission is to ensure a healthy Green Lake for wildlife and recreation, for today and tomorrow.
