  • Controlling Algae in a Wastewater Lagoon

    In wastewater lagoons, single cellular algae can cause significant problems by effecting DO, pH, and TSS levels.  While algal growth does provide some benefit in reducing nutrient levels within the lagoons, it is imperative that the algae be controlled so as to minimize the negative impacts on the water quality in the lagoon effluent.  This article explores the impact that Bio-Domes ...

  • Why it is Important to Control Algae Growth

    A combination of high temperatures, stagnant water and nutrient overload can result in excessive algae growth. These so-called algal blooms can lead to a depletion of oxygen in the water, release of toxins and taste and odor problems. Without treatment, the algae will grow more every year, resulting in an unbalanced ecosystem. Therefore, it is important to control algal blooms for a healthy ...

  • Algae Controlled in a US Drinking Water Reservoir

    A floating solar powered algae control system was installed in Emmitsburg (US) to control algae in a reservoir that provides drinking water to approximately 3,000 people. The MPC-Buoy system, installed in April 2017, succeeds in controlling algae, reducing chemical costs and water usage. The Challenge: Control Algae Problems The main objective of the project was to reduce ...

  • Environmental Industrial Water & Algae Control in lagoons and ponds.

    Proven site trails and report shows a excellent reduction/removal of Microcystis and filamentous algae where we proved excellent results with ASMP-1000.A systems These ponds are characterised by large open lagoons with a fairly high residence time of water and UV exposure in the summer months. During the holding period in the open reservoirs, filamentous algae start growing ...

  • Algae control in drinking water treatment - case study

    For the Ministry of Agriculture in Cyprus, LG Sound b.v installed 33 LG Sonic, ultrasonic devices in the Limassol water treatment plant, to prevent bad odour and taste to the water caused by geosmins in the water. The earthy taste problem persisted during summer of 2010 and various physical, chemical and biological tests were done in order to check the process efficiency, which showed problems ...

  • Why Interactive Ultrasonic Programs are Important to Effectively Control Algae

    Many different algal types can bloom in a water body. Some of these algae are plant cells, while others are bacteria. Algae may vary in size, shape and cell characteristics. Typically, the type of algae that blooms depends on water temperature and sun hours. As a result, algal types may change several times during a season. To effectively  ...

  • Optimal strategy for algae control in potable water treatment facilities

    This paper presents both a current review of the state-of-the-art in algae removal, and an experimental study of algae removal in potable water supply. Established techniques were investigated by jar-testing on surface raw water samples derived from a lowland river, with the dominant species of algae being Scenedesmus sp (a green algae). These tests were conducted both in isolation and in ...

  • Control Algae and Improve the Water Quality in Waste Stabilization Ponds

    Due to population growth, accelerated urbanisation and economic development, the quantity of waste water generated is increasing globally. Mainly in low-income areas, a large proportion of the waste water is discharged directly in the environment. When the waste water is treated, the treatment plants may not remove certain pollutants that can have a negative impact on the people and ecosystem. ...
