  • Is Water RunOff Effecting my Pond?

    What is Water RunOff? Runoff is precipitation that did not get (infiltrated) absorbed into the soil, or did not evaporate, and therefore made its way from the ground surface into places that water collect. Runoff causes erosion, and also carry chemicals and substances on the ground surface along to the ponds, lakes and rivers where the water ends up. ( ...

  • Oxygen, the fix for pond problems

    Aeration of a water feature should have three main considerations. These include preventing thermal stratification, balancing the dissolved oxygen levels throughout the water column from the sludge or benthic layer to the surface and balancing temperature levels throughout the water column. Although oxygen transfer from certain methods may be significant, the greatest amount of oxygenation takes ...

  • 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 ...

  • Treating Winery Wastewater Without Ponds

    Wineries traditionally treat their wine process wastewater with aerobic (aerated) ponds to biologically degrade the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). The treated wastewater from these ponds needs to have a BOD of 40 ppm or less (depending on the location of the winery) before the winery can discharge the water to the vineyards for irrigation. The discharge level of 40 ppm as well as the ...

  • Analysis of nitrogenous and algal oxygen demand in effluent from a system of aerated lagoons followed by polishing pond

    In this descriptive-analytical study, nitrogenous and algal oxygen demand were assessed for effluent from a system of facultative partially mixed lagoons followed by the polishing pond using 120 grab samples over 1 year. Filtered and non-filtered samples of polishing pond effluent were tested in the presence and absence of a nitrification inhibitor. Effective factors, including 5-day biochemical ...

  • Case Study: Farm pond sludge and algae remediation

    Problem A 1 ½ acre farm pond located in southeastern Wisconsin was experiencing a severe algae bloom due to high levels of fertilizer runoff from the surrounding farm fields located on the north and east sides of the pond. Farm field runoff drains into the north end of the pond via a 4-inch drainpipe. The pond is further fertilized by the year round population of 6-8 resident ducks and by ...

  • Thermal stratification - Destroyer of healthy pond and lake ecosystems

    IT is early spring in a small reservoir which supports an exclusive condominium and golf coursa development. At and near the surface of the pond, in the layer called th: epilimnion, microscopic plants and animals (phytoplarikt< in and zaoplankton) feed on each other and are fed on in turn by small fish and other animals. Wind and wave action at the surface causes oxygen from the air to be ...

  • Case study - Algae control in residential pond

    Eagles Landing is situated on the banks of Hartbeespoort Dam. It has an inland pond surrounded by houses that residents decided to treat their algae problems with LG Sonic e-line technology. The Challenge: Green Algae Mats Covering the Pond’s Shores The residential pond was plagued with heavy thick green algae, had high maintenance requirements, and was an eyesore for ...

  • Common Causes of Fish Kills in Your Pond

    What Killed My Fish? The first question everyone has when they notice fish floating in open water or washed up along the bank is: what killed my fish? The most common causes of fish kills are oxygen depletion, algal blooms (could deplete oxygen or be toxic), pesticide toxicity and disease. By far, the most common cause of fish kills is oxygen depletion in lakes or ...

  • Wastewater lagoons – a new aeration concept

    The use of wastewater treatment lagoons, or stabilization ponds, is a common practice for rural municipalities and industrial facilities. Through the years there have been numerous designs for these ‘sludge settling basins,’ ranging from facultative, partial aerated, and fully aerated systems. But the primary reason for these systems is to utilize relatively shallow earthen ponds, or ...

  • Upgrading of decentralized ponds for municipal wastewater treatment and restricted reuse

    Upgrading of a pond system for municipal wastewater treatment in a decentralized area is evaluated. The pond was constructed for the treatment of 63 m3/d. Currently it receives 83 m3/d, therefore poor treatment efficiency was recorded. An expansion of 1.6 times the present land area was required. In addition to construction, operation and maintenance were required to meet the permissible limits. ...

  • Characterization of methane flux from photosynthetic oxidation ponds in a wastewater treatment plant

    Photosynthetic oxidation ponds are a low-cost method for secondary treatment of wastewater using natural and more energy-efficient aeration strategies. Methane (CH4) is produced during the anaerobic digestion of organic matter, but only some of it is oxidized in the water column, with the remaining CH4 escaping into the atmosphere. In order to characterize the CH4 flux in two ...

  • Remote controlled `Pit Hog™` dredge removing sludge from aeration lagoons at Los Alisos, California, Waste Water Treatment Plant

    The Los Alisos Water District Water Reclamation Plant is removing raw sewage solids, decayed algae and microorganisms, and algae-laden sludge from its aeration lagoons using a Liquid Waste Technology (LWT) remote controlled lagoon dredging system. The tertiary wastewater treatment plant treats four million gallons per day. Officials of the Lake Forest, California facility initiated the buildup ...

  • Case study - Mazzei aeration system solves lagoon odors and high maintenance problems

    The Problem: A large vegetable processing facility was experiencing problems with its lagoon surface aerators. The company’s treatment process includes a collection and screening assembly, two anaerobic stabilization ponds and a 40 million gallon aerated lagoon. The aeration lagoon is used for BOD reduction and polishing before the water is discharged to a near-by creek. Several surface ...

  • Taiwan: Water quality key to success in eel farming

    A notable Taiwanese scholar discovered the key to growing eel in Taiwan: good water quality. Only Japan had been capable of raising eel in Asia. He reported, 'The number one source of pond pollution is the bottom of the ponds where animal wastes and left-over feed accummulate and deplete oxygen.' This scholar raises Anguilla japonica eels at his research institute’s 2 hectare farm at stocking ...
