Basic Tutorial for
Controlling Aquatic Pollution

Poor water quality in lakes and ponds impacts the lives of many wildlife species including fish, ducks, geese, animals and plants. Poor water quality is caused by the nutrient load from fertilizer runoff, chemical pollutants, and the feces and urine from animals and fish. These excess nutrients overpower the natural bacterial population that normally would keep the aquatic environment in balance. Sludge develops, algae becomes overabundant, oxygen becomes limited, the incidence of disease and stunted growth increases, and mortality rates soar.
The bacterial technology developed to improve water quality in aquaculture and aquariums, where maximum density and minimal water changes are present, can also be used to improve or maintain clean water in ponds and lakes, while reducing the level of ugly algae.
