Attention Mr. Tom Watkins

THOMAS HILL
COOLING WATER LAKE
5,500 Acres


First Stage Hot Water Tank #1, 62-Acres

    The above concept uses two 5 HP CLEAN-FLO Large Compressor Cabinets with 6 outlets each.  Seven trunk lines will extend to the midpoint of three Vertex XLP 2.5(minimum CFM) AirStations without control valves between the three of them.  Therefore each three units within the group will need to be within about 1 or 2 feet of the same depth.
    Maximum depth of any of these will be about 25 to 30 feet to remain using a vane pump.  Deeper water will require a different type of compressor.  (We are assuming the depth of this water will fall within that limit for the time being.)
    Turnover rate of the system if all were at 18 feet deep would be around 350,000 gallons per minute.  The oxygen exchange rate would be a totally wild guess because we don't know the actual facts of depth, water temp etc., but could exceed 135 pounds per hour.
    Retention time in the hot-tank area is unknown, along with many other things we don't know.

    If the 62 acres averaged 15 feet deep, it would hold 303 million gallons.  Divide that by 350,000 gallons, the hot tank would turn over every 865 minutes, or 14.5 hours.  In a normal lake, that would bring oxygen all the way to the bottom.  Let's start from there and see where this goes.

Wildly Estimated 5/8" I.D. trunk line length = 7,000 feet
Planned 0.55" I.D. feeder line length 50' each X 3 X 12 = 1,800 feet
Cost of Trunk Line = 99 Cents/Ft.
Cost of Feeder Line = $1.10/Ft.
Cost of AirStations = $290 Each
Cost of Compressor in Cabinets = $9,000 Each (???)
    Plus Freight of approximately $2,000
    Plus Missouri Sales Tax
    Plus Installation of 25 Cents Per Foot of Air Line + $30/per Air Station

This is an engineering estimate off the top of my head and must not be construed as a price quote.

This is a fast look at what you need to do to oxygenate the water leaving the first stage of the hot water area.  We recommend doing the same process in the second stage and you should consider aerating even more of the lake.  If there is a potable public water use from this lake, it should be aerated to eliminate algae laden with manganese and iron to reduce the cost of water treatment.

Thank you for your consideration of this idea to eliminate fish kills in your lake and improving the quality of water in your reservoir.
