Blackridge Reservoir Gets a Clean-up
During the week of the 4th of July, the Blackridge Reservoir had a face-lift. Along with the completion of the parking lot, the water department from Herriman City came in with guys in scuba gear and got down and dirty removing the mass of algae in the reservoir. While they wrapped up the algae with rope underwater, a tractor would do the rest. For those of you who love to train in the reservoir, the algae growth was a major annoyance. Getting my feet tangled up in that mess got my heart racing, and I am so happy that we have removed most of this. With the addition of aerators, we expect the growth of algae to be under control.
I want to thank all of our water department employees for their work on the reservoir this summer. I look forward to the construction of the snack shack/restrooms at the conclusion of the 2012 season.
