 by TWIW StaffJune 3, 2021

In today’s daily 5 Things You Need to Know feature, ThisWeekinWorcester.com explores five important items and stories that Worcester and Central Massachusetts residents should keep a close eye on.

These five things can cover a whole range of subjects and issues that we feel are pertinent to understanding what’s going on in the city and the cities and towns surrounding Worcester.

In today’s edition – Thursday, June 3 - Indian Lake to be treated today with aluminum sulfate, the Better Business Bureau of Central New England awards scholarships, Table Talk Pies offers its Custard Pie today for $1.50, Glazy Susan releases its June menu and the Worcester Chamber Music Society performs for employees of UMASS Memorial Hospital.

Preventative Treatment at Indian Lake

The City of Worcester Department of Public Works & Parks has announced that Indian Lake will be treated with aluminum sulfate on Thursday, June 3.

Individuals should stay out of the water, refrain from using boats, and keep their pets out of the water on the day of the treatment.

Signs will be posted on the beaches of Indian Lake prior to the treatment.

Aluminum sulfate, also known as alum, is a safe and effective way to control the growth of harmful, toxin-producing algae by removing phosphorus from the water. The application of alum is a common practice to maintain a healthy lake and keeping it free of cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, and associated toxins. This preventative treatment poses minimal risk to humans and animals after application is complete.
