Lake George - Anua Case Study
Lake George is a long, narrow lake draining northwards into Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence River drainage basin located at the southeast base of the Adirondack Mountains in northern New York. The lake is home to 395 islands. While the year-round population of Lake George is about 1,000, the population from Memorial Day to Labor Day can be greater than 50,000.
After meetings with the Lake George Water Association and code enforcement officers, it was determined that a Puraflo peat fiber biofilter was the optimal solution to the problem.
The alternative was installing large, above-ground tanks that would have required pumping via a barge pump every three to four weeks the homes were occupied.
