Abstract

Calcium carbonate was utilized to neutralize an acidic lake and stream in the Adirondack Region of New York state. Theoretical caculations based on aqueous base neutralizing capacity underestimated the CaCO3 dose required to achieve lake neutralization (pH 6.5) for a year. It would appear that lake sediments have a profound influence on base dose requirements. - from ASCE Publications Abstracts
