Abstract

Calcium carbonate was utilized to neutralize an acidic lake and stream in the Adirondack Region of New York State. Theoretical calculations based on aqueous base neutralizing capacity underestimated the CaCO//3 dose required to achieve lake neutralization pH 6. 5) for a year. Calcium carbonate neutralization altered water column pH, calcium, acid neutralize capacity, dissolved inorganic carbon, dissolved organic carbon, free fluoride, aluminum, manganese, zinc, and copper levels.
