Managing Pond and Lake Effluent

Biological Effluent Pond Testing: This is an effective, eco-friendly and completely natural way to determine the suitability of a specific biological filtration solution for your pond or lake. Bacterial testing performed on unfiltered ponds by certified laboratories will reveal all types of microorganisms that inhabit ponds and lakes. This information will aid in determining the most effective solutions for your particular needs and will also allow you to make informed choices in the type of biological pond treatment that best suits your goals and circumstances.

How to do Managing Pond and Lake Effluent

Dairy Farm Protection: Providing protection for dairy farmers from undesirable pests, diseases and environmental debris is crucial to the continued health and productivity of the entire dairy industry. To protect your investment in human and animal resources and to assure that your operations remain disease-free, invest in state of the art biological filtering systems and treatment systems that will keep your entire dairy operation entirely disease-free. In particular, the introduction of “stirring” technology has helped to make this possible. Stirring is the practice of introducing aerobic (oxygen-requiring) bacteria into an unfiltered body of water to stimulate the metabolism and growth of other living organisms.

Stirring Elimination: Aerobic bacteria are by nature more difficult to control than do aerobic (oxygen-requiring) ones so it is important to introduce these types of organisms as early as possible to help establish a balanced, nutrient-rich environment for them to thrive and reproduce. Aerobic (oxygen -requiring) bacteria are introduced into ponds and lakes through biological filtration methods such as biological aeration and mechanical aeration. Biological filtration alone cannot guarantee the elimination of all solids from your pond or lake, so it is important to use other methods that will accelerate the elimination of all solids from your ponds and lakes. One such method is that of “stirring”, which uses the natural biological process of agitates to break up large solids, converting them into a nutrient – rich sludge so they can be skimmed off the surface of the water.
