Aerial Application of Granular Alum in the Blue Cypress Marsh
Vickie Hoge, Environmental Scientist IV, SJRWMD

  • Approximately 600 acres of Blue Cypress Marsh in Indian River County were treated with granular alum to bind excessive sediment phosphorus and reduce cattail coverage.  This treatment will allow restoration of foraging and nesting habitat for the endangered Snail Kite.


GIS, Imagery, Litigation and Lakes at SJRWMD
William E. VanSickle, GIS Analyst III, SJRWMD

  • This presentation illustrates the intersection of Geographic Information Systems, historical imagery and litigation as they apply to the determination of fact and presentation of evidence regarding historical water levels and water management. Includes some examples of the use of GIS and georeferenced scanned imagery as they were used in recent state and federal cases.


Bioassay Assessment of Sediment Contamination: Its Role in Florida's Sediment Quality Assessment Guidelines
Jennifer Sagan, Senior Scientist, AMEC E & I

  • The talk will cover Florida’s Sediment Quality Guidelines for determining the best course of remedial action involving a contaminated site. The Guidelines are based on likely biological effects given the type and concentration of contaminants. It also considers potential additive effects to biota if multiple contaminants are present. While the guidance provides clear guidelines on scenarios where no biological effect (Threshold Effects Level or TEL) is likely and when biological effects are highly likely (Probable Effects Level or PEL), there exists a gray area where additional bioassay tests conducted with site sediments can help determine real impacts to biota.

  

The Northeast Chapter of the Florida Lake Management Society was designed to be a forum in which citizens and professionals can meet to identify, educate, and correct the problems concerning our lakes.
