Wisconsin Brewing Co. uses unique technology to destroy blue-green algae in “Lake Sadie-Mae”
As part of a $50,000 Urban Water Quality Grant from Dane County to the City of Verona, an innovative treatment was applied Wednesday to “Lake Sadie-Mae”, a pond adjacent to Wisconsin Brewing Company.

Although used commonly throughout the U.S., and the world, use of this technology is not common in Wisconsin. Using a specialized boat, the treatment sprays the surface of the pond with Aluminum hlorohydrate (ACH) to reduce phosphorus, which is the leading factor in the creation of hazardous blue-green algae.

The treatment was conducted by Harvey H. Harper, III, Ph.D., P.E. – President of Environmental Research & Design (ERD), Orlando, Florida.
