Do you have a large pond, farm pond or a very large lined irrigation pond overgrown with weeds, with deep layers of sludge, excessive algae growth or water clarity issues? Parklink has a range of sustainable solutions specifically for these problems.
One of the most common problems that occur in ponds and lakes is that they become overgrown with filamentous algae. Filamentous algae are single algae cells that form long visible chains, threads, or filaments. These filaments intertwine forming a mat that resembles wet wool. Filamentous algae starts growing along the bottom in shallow water or attached to structures in the water (like rocks or other aquatic plants). Often times the algae will become detached from what it was growing on and float along the surface of the water like a rug. Also Lakes and ponds are catch basins for many sources of nutrient pollution. Excess nitrogen and phosphorus from animal or fish waste, stormwater runoff, grass clippings or leaves, and fertilisers are a just a few examples of the nutrient pollution that eventually settles at the base of lakes and ponds. Large Lake and ponds with bases that are overloaded with these nutrients can experience depletion of oxygen, fish kills, excessive weed growth or harmful algae blooms that negatively impact water quality.
