Description of Datasource: The Nutrient Reduction Facility (NuRF) is a $7.272 million cooperative water quality improvement effort by the LCWA, the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The project will use off-line alum injection to remove pollutants flowing out of Lake Apopka into the rest of the Harris Chain of Lakes. Lake Apopka was historically one of the most polluted lakes in Florida, but restoration efforts are underway and there have been some signs of improvement. Still, discharge from the lake is the single largest source of controllable pollution in Lake County.
