New dredging project is underway at Lake Apopka

From the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictThe St. Johns River Water Management District has started work on a sump dredge project designed to help improve water quality at Lake Apopka. The project is not expected to impede navigation on the canal or lake.“Our focus remains centered on projects that bring us closer to our goal of restoring the lake’s ecosystem,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “Improved water quality now provides conditions that are allowing native submerged plants to recolonize the lake’s bottom. As these plants expand, they provide the habitat critical to the recovery of the lake’s historic bass fishery.”The project is unique from previous dredging projects because it will create a sump, or a depression, at the lake-bottom to collect nutrient-laden sediment near the mouth of the Apopka-Beauclair Canal. Collecting and eventually removing the material is expected to reduce turbidity in Lake Apopka and help improve water quality.A barge stationed near the canal will use floating pipe to transport material collected from the lake’s bottom to an area west of the canal, where it will raise subsided marsh and bury residual pesticides found on the formerly farmed land. Additionally, if needed, water from the dredging will be routed through the district’s marsh flow-way, a constructed wetland, for additional nutrient removal.High water levels from Hurricane Irma originally delayed the start of the project, which is expected to run through early 2019 and collect about 500,000 cubic yards of nutrient-laden material.St. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida. The St. Johns River Water Management District is one of five districts in Florida managing groundwater and surface water supplies in the state. The district encompasses all or part of 18 northeast and east-central Florida counties. District headquarters are in Palatka, and staff also are available to serve the public at service centers in Maitland, Jacksonville, and Palm Bay.

The cost should be collected from the farmers that abused the lake for 80 years. Take back the millions that was paid by the state to stop them.For 30 years I have been saying they should extract the muck in the lake and expose it to the sun. Joe LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Good luck on getting the clean- up costs of Lake Apopka back out of the muck farmers that were bought out by the state. Most of them have passed on to a better place, or gone on to greener pastures…..Write a letter to President Trump, and ask him for his personal financial help Jack, maybe he will listen to one of his loyal supporters…lol Mama Mia Maybe if the lake were drained of the water, all the levels of sediment and muck removed, and dug out, allowed to dry out, and then restored. There would go the existing fish, and where would all of the water go during this project? Who would want to buy that muck dirt, with all the contaminated long-lasting toxic chemicals in it? Or where would it be hauled to? Too enormous and costly a project….spending huge amounts of state monies, or federal monies, on this project, is but a waste, when there are people needing help with shelter, food, and care. But if that is what makes them happy trying, well go for it…..the damage is already done. Tainted for the lengths of our lifetimes, for sure.

Grassley Presses E-15 Summertime Marketing Bill

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Grassley Presses E-15 Summertime Marketing Bill Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Apr 8, 2015 SHARE Grassley-Paul E15 billEPA summertime restrictions on higher blends of ethanol and the petroleum industry’s resistance to installing new blend pumps has throttled E-15 availability and sales. But Kentucky Republican and now-Presidential candidate Rand Paul has teamed up with Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley to offer E-15 some help in the form of the Fuel Choice and Deregulation Act of 2015.According to Grassley, “It would change what EPA could do to treat E-15 different during the summer from E-10 because basically in some parts of the country you can’t use E-15 today.”Grassley says there are some key provisions they have included.“One would be remove burdensome EPA certification on aftermarket vehicle conversions; secondly reform cafe requirements by permanently extending the credit for auto manufacturers of flex-fuel vehicles and provide a new bonus credit of compliance for automakers with at least half of their fleet comprised of flex-fuel.”And the bill would require liquid natural gas to be taxed based on its energy content instead of its volume – removing a federal barrier to competition. The EPA lifted restrictions on E-15 use in many older model and newer model cars and light trucks some five-years ago – but many roadblocks remain to its widespread reported at the first of the month that co-sponsoring the bill with Grassley gives Rand Paul a way to appeal to Iowa’s alternative energy sector, while not compromising his free-market ideology.

Planters Rolling in Southern Indiana

first_img SHARE Planters Rolling in Southern IndianaIt only took a few dry days and some warming soil temps to get farmers into the fields in Southern Indiana. A good deal of planting activity took place last week and over the weekend in Southern Indiana, says Bill Meacham with DuPont Pioneer. “In the Evansville, area we had farmers planting from last Wednesday through Sunday,” he stated. “By Friday, we had planters rolling pretty good in a larger area as fields dried out.”Soil temperatures are also to the point where growers can roll as soon as the soil is dry enough. Meacham told HAT last week soil temps hit the 60 degree mark in many fields in Southern Indiana, “The forecast as we roll into May calls for highs in the 70s, so I think as soon as the soils are ready it is time to go.”Meacham says that, so far, planting is off to a good start although there are still some areas that are too wet to plant. He said, “It is shaping up to be a lot like 2016 when a lot of corn in Southern Indiana got planted in May and we had good yields.” He added farmer attitudes are good and they are anxious to get into the field.Listen for more crop updates later this week here on Hoosier Ag Today.
