Cary and Apex are buying a $4.1 million aeration system to address Jordan Lake’s inconsistent water quality. They will use the ResMix system, manufactured by the Australian firm WEARS. The system will circulate water near the intake, just north of where U.S. 64 crosses Jordan Lake, disrupting water stratification that occurs in the summer. In this 2014 photo, Jason Green, environmental program supervisor with N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources (now Department of Environmental Quality) takes a water sample from Jordan Lake.
