Well, Lake Processed Water and More

This is going to be…(LONG) .with tons of good info..so we will post on a PAGE and categorize it.   I am am not an expert….by any means…but outside… my job was fluid control for 30 years and as far as Brandy Lake goes…….I have been involved and water testing with BLA since its beginning  including a 3  year intense study we did with the government about 13 ish years ago… …..up until I abruptly quit the BLA recently.

The immediate question for many..should I have a drinking well water, process lake water or draw in raw and buy water?

Brandy Lake has 2.6 mg/l of tannin and this is the primary fight on the decision to process our own water.  So 1st ….here is our lake makeup.  This is my test from 2014 and  I have 2nd from 1995.  I need to do some math to compare  as the 1995 version is in PPM format

So..2014  I will further explain each line later

Brandy Lake The Story

WATER QUALITY BRANDY LAKE MID 70’s

Brandy Lake is classified as a Headwater Lake with a reported water shed of about 30 x’s the lake size.   You can see one of the major inlet stream by going to google maps satellite view  (button located top right) typing in Brandy Lake and scroll to the north east end. The photo is from several years ago showing the clear inlet that collects water from what seems to be the Bracebridge basin.
