What causes the spike in levels?

Claremore typically experiences elevated levels during seasonal changes, or when temperatures begin to rise. Common factors include lake turnover (the seasonal movement of water in a lake when waters of different temperatures mix), heavy rains and high winds.

Claremore Lake is the source of the City of Claremore’s water supply and when water inversion or turnover happens, Manganese is more apparent in the water. The water that rises to the top brings with it soluble compounds like Manganese.
