Skyrim Pauses Randomly / Long Load Times – HELP!

I am attempting to reach out to troubleshoot the culprit behind an issue I'm experiencing with my most recent playthrough of Skyrim SE. It appears that my playthrough will pause randomly for at most 20 seconds, and can sometimes have 2-10 minute loading times.

What's concerning is it appears to seems to happen in very specific areas of the game, particularly areas with a lot of water. I tested this by traveling to places like Solitude and Winterhold (1-5 minute load times) and places like Markarth and Falkreath (Virtually non-existant). I'm currently playing the Hanging Gardens mod, which involves a lot of water, and the load times are practically 10 minutes at minimum.

I am looking for help with troubleshooting the potential culprit behind this annoying issue. I though it was Realistic Water Two, but that didn't work when I removed the mod, so I am wondering if it is something else, or maybe it's an issue with my mod configuration.

I am using The Truth ENB, and my graphics card is a Nividia GeForce GTX 1060.

I will post all my current installed plugins below (Some of them are merged, but I'm posting the whole plugin list just in case):
