Bottom Diffused Aeration

Are Lake and Pond Sediments Causing Algae Blooms?

The sediments in your pond or lake may be the cause of recurring or toxic algae blooms. We all know these blooms are a major source of frustration for property owners and those who manage them. Phosphorus is the nutrient that feeds these blooms, but it is not always obvious where the phosphorus is coming... Read More

4 Rules for a Healthy Aeration System

A healthy aeration system in your lake, pond, marina, canal or reservoir helps maintain the balance of oxygen and nutrients. Plants, fish and other living organisms need oxygen to survive. Problems that occur in waterbodies are often associated with a lack of oxygen where it is needed. These issues include algae and aquatic weeds, fish... Read More

Oxygen Debt in Your Waterbody

Oxygen debt is the difference between the amount of oxygen your lake or pond needs each day to stay in balance vs what it has. When your dissolved oxygen meter reads 0 mg/L, we know there is a problem. Unfortunately, a meter cannot tell you how much oxygen debt the lake is in. Oxygen meters... Read More

Bubble Curtains and Aeration Together

Many of the problems experienced in canals and marinas can be attributed to the reduced water flow in and out of these systems from the main water body. Once materials make their way in, they have difficulty getting out. Floating algae, sea grasses, dead fish and other debris take over canals and marinas. These issues... Read More

Control Harmful Algae Blooms

Aeration Helps to Control Toxic Algae By Patrick Goodwin, Certified Lake Manager and Aquatic Research Scientist Nutrient over-enrichment of waters by urban, agricultural, and industrial development has promoted the growth of cyanobacteria as harmful algae blooms (HABs). These blooms increase the turbidity of waterbodies which can smother aquatic plants and limit invertebrate and fish habitats.... Read More

Stop Pond and Lake Odors at the Source

Aeration Eliminates the Rotten Egg Reek By Dr. Josette La Hée, Senior Environmental Research Consultant Have you noticed pond or lake odors that smell like rotten eggs? When there is plenty of oxygen in your pond, the aerobic bacteria will happily breakdown organic matter without releasing hydrogen sulfide. If there is very little oxygen in... Read More

Aeration for Marinas and Canals

Marina and canal systems are particularly vulnerable to oxygenation problems. Reduced flow, increased depth, and isolation from the main waterbody cause low oxygen. These systems can be fresh, marine, brackish, or have variable salinity. Pollution from boats adds to the challenges of keeping these areas healthy and aesthetically pleasing. Aeration reduces the variability experienced in... Read More

Aeration for Pond or Lake Dock De-icing

Dock de-icing is important for property owners with ponds or lakes that freeze in the winter. Docks and boats face the real possibility of severe ice damage when the water is not kept open. Just because there may have been a mild winter occasionally in recent years, doesn’t mean there will be one this year.... Read More

Silver Lake: An Aeration Design Case Study

Aeration design has been done twice for 99 acre Silver Lake in Summit County, OH. It is a groundwater-dominated seepage lake constructed in the mid to late 1800’s that until the early 1970’s received varying amounts of wastewater. Legacy nutrients from these periods have maintained the lake as eutrophic, despite improvements in the watershed (i.e.,... Read More
