Councilors decided to table purchasing a powder that might be able to decrease the amount of water lost to evaporation when applied to the surface of the lakes.
The powder was tested on Lake Arrowhead yesterday but the application process did not work as well as expected.
But city officials say they still think the powder is a good option.
“Still think it's worth a try, now it's only worth an effort or a try if we can actually put it down correctly, if we can't put it down correctly and we don't have the right equipment, then we may need to buy some equipment or we may decided looks it just flat won't work on a 6,000 foot reservoir,” says WF Public Works Director Russell Schreiber.
So now the city will be working with the manufacturer to try and find a way to make it work and hope to bring it back to the council.
