In July 2011, the golf course pond at the Lethbridge country club was treated with the LG Sonic e-line. The water surface was covered by mats of filamentous algae. The rocks within the pond where covered by Dydimo sp.  

The Challenge: Control Filamentous Algae and Diatoms

In July 2011, the golf course pond at the Lethbridge country club was treated with LG Sonic. The water surface was covered by mats of filamentous algae. The rocks within the pond where covered by Dydimo sp . An invasive (diatom)algae that is an emerging problem in Northern America.

The Solution: Control Algae with the LG Sonic e-line

The Lethbridge country club golf course pond with the following dimensions: 81 x 25 meter, was treated with the implementation of the LG Sonic e-line XL plus on solar power.

The Results: 90% Reduction in Filamentous Algae

During the 2 month trial, the filamentous algae on the water surface decreased by 90%. Some areas in the water that where shaded from the ultrasound still had a slight accumulation of filamentous algae. Dydimo growth on the rocks in the ponds was reduced and kept under control by the LG Sonic e-line.

Key Results

  • 90% reduction in filamentous algae
  • Strong growth reduction of the diatom Dydimo on the rocks in the pond.
  • Improved transparency of the water
