Solutions for Neutralization of Acidic Lakes

The problem with acid lakes is that acid lakes consume water hardness as the acid lakes are neutralized by liming. If the water in the acid lakes were not acidic, the water hardness would most likely be good, as it probably was centuries ago. Calcium and magnesium present in most rock and mineral deposits are […]
