SolarBee floating anchors, foreground, await loading as SolarBee employees Steve Shanabarger, left, and Cody Lague disassemble a SolarBee core unit August 11, 2016 at Farrington Point boat ramp at Jordan Lake in Chatham County. Twenty four of the SolarBee reservoir circulators were installed in the northern part of Jordan Lake in hope of reducing algae blooms in July 2014 but were found by the NC Department of Environmental Quality to be ineffective. The units in the northern part of Jordan Lake were being collected and disassembled for removal back to North Dakota this week. Shanabarger said that the remaining 12 SolarBee units in the Haw River at Robeson Creek landing will be removed next week.
