MICROBE-LIFT® Restores Retention Pond at South Point Office Park in Jacksonville, FL - ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION
This 12-acre office park in Florida was designed with a one-acre pond at its bottom edge for water retention. However, as the surrounding areas were maintained with fertilizers and pesticides the pond became filled with surface scum creating a very unattractive eyesore. The primary points of pollution were run-off from fertilizer applied by the lawn care company, grass clippings from the lawn maintenance company, storm water from the parking lot, and debris from surrounding trees. The pond had been previously treated by a different company with chemical algaecide and blue dye to remediate algae but this treatment was not effective long-term.
