  • Algae Control in Lakes and Reservoirs

    There are plenty of harmful algal bloom related cases worldwide but what is evident is that their number elevates with each year. Excessive cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and green algae growth in a water reservoir can have negative consequences for the water quality. The water turns green, sand filters can clog, and some algae can produce geosmins and MIB, giving the water an ...

  • Designing for algae proliferation in a new reclaimed water reservoir

    ABSTRACT Forest Lake reservoir in Pebble Beach, California is a former potable water reservoir that has been converted to a reclaimed water reservoir. The reservoir fills during the winter months and stays full throughout the spring and then is gradually depleted during the summer months. Detention times can range from 2 to 8 months. The long detention times along with other factors provide ...

  • Research on applying a water-lifting aerator to inhibit the growth of algae in a source-water reservoir

    A new hydraulic, water-lifting aerator was developed for ameliorating water quality. It aims at mixing lower and upper water bodies, controlling algae growth, increasing dissolved oxygen concentration in water and inhibiting the release of pollutants from sediments. This new device was applied to control the algae growth in surface water of the water source of Tianjin. It was found that the ...
