Lake & Pond Remediation
Control of aquatic weeds and algae is important in ornamental lakes and treatment ponds. These water bodies are typically high in nutrients and become stagnant over time due to a lack of aeration and circulation that leads to the overgrowth of pond algae and weeds. This results in an accumulation of plant detritus and bottom sludge, which compacts the problem and the cycle of stagnation continues.
At BioRemedy, we provide our clients with a customised water management and water treatment solution that is tailored specifically for their lakes, dams and ponds and is proven to work. We do not offer cookie-cutter solutions, instead we ensure that each water management solution considers all the factors of the problem and is designed to return the water body to optimum health. Stagnant ponds and lakes, choked with pond algae and weeds are unsafe for our environment, leading to the death of both waterlife and wildlife, as well as being visually unappealing. It is essential that these water bodies be returned to health as quickly as possible.
Treating pond algae and overgrown weeds
BioRemedy have provided effective and cost efficient solutions for golf courses, nurseries, sewage treatment polishing, abattoirs, dairies, piggeries, poultry farms, food processing, agricultural dams, residential ponds, wineries & distilleries, and mining holding dams. We use a combination of mechanical circulation and aeration, and/or the use of algaecide and microbial dosage, returning the water body to a healthy state, which can then be managed over the long term.
Aeration is one of the environmentally friendly solutions in our arsenal, because it targets the cause of the problem and produces the best results. The reason that lakes and ponds become stagnant is because of a lack of oxygen in the water (caused by an overabundance of algae that use up all of the oxygen). This results in a bottom sludge of detritus that cannot be broken down due to the lack of oxygen in the water; a situation that only becomes worse over time. Mechanical or solar pond aeration therefore, reintroduces oxygen into the water column, allowing the over accumulation of detritus to be degraded naturally by bacteria in the presence of oxygen and the water starts to clear and return to it’s normal healthy state.
With a background in engineering, applied science and microbiology, BioRemedy is one of the leading companies in Australia focusing on lake and pond remediation using non-toxic and environmentally friendly water management and water treatment solutions for the remediation of pond algae and the overgrowth of weeds. We are passionate about returning our fresh water lakes, dams and ponds to their previous pristine health and take great pride in creating workable solutions for our clients.
