Organic Sediment Removal Through Multiple Inversion

24 Feb

Excerpt from: Organic Sediment Removal Through Multiple Inversion Prepared by: Robert L. Laing, President Clean-Flo Laboratories, Inc. Hopkins, Minnesota 55343 Abstract Several researchers have noted increases in benthic invertebrates when water quality if improved. The purpose of this paper is to examine sediment removal as a result of these increases in bottom-feeding organisms. Introduction If […]

Inversion Oxygenation Helps Reduce Organic Sediments and Milfoil

22 Feb
Clean-Flo Results from Lake St Catherine

The Challenge Over the years, organic sediments built up in the lower end of Lake St. Catherine (181 acre Little Lake), Wells, VT. Milfoil growth started to dominate the lake and made navigation and water sport enjoyment almost impossible. Chemical applications to kill the milfoil contributed to further accumulations of over 20 feet of organic […]

Inversion Oxygenation and Bioaugmentation Quickly Reduces Organic Sediments

22 Feb
Lake Apopka Restored

The Challenge Lake Apopka is a 30,888 acre hyper-eutrophic lake located in central Florida. Once known for fantastic fishing, the lake had 28 fishing camps located around it. Decades of fertilizer and chemical use in adjoining parcels have contributed excessive nutrient inputs that have devastated the aquatic ecosystem and have transitioned the lake from a […]

Controlling Cyanobacteria in a Eutrophic Water Supply

02 Jan
Water Restoration by Clean-Flo

Cyanobacteria / blue green algae was controlled in a eutrophic water supply using a reservoir diffused aeration destratification system. The following article describes how eutrophication was corrected to rid the water supply of geosmin caused by cyanobacteria in the drinking water. Summary of the Feng-Shan Reservoir Project: Robert L. Laing, and Carlton J. Rausch, CLEAN-FLO […]

How Watershed Management and Continuous Laminar Flow Inversion Reduce Phosphorus and Nitrogen in Lakes, Rivers and Reservoirs

02 Jan

Introduction Watershed management is an important tool in restoring polluted water bodies. The results, however, are often limited and further treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. A major problem is that non-point source pollution may be difficult to control. This leads to the question, can in-situ treatment help attain the nutrient reductions needed […]

The Effect of Continuous Laminar Flow Inversion, Micro-organisms, and Calcium on Acidified Lakes

31 Dec

Robert L. Laing CLEAN-FLO International Introduction There is ever-growing concern about acidified lakes because of acidic precipitation (acid rain and snow). Several acids are present in the atmosphere. Carbonic acid results when carbon dioxide from animal (and human) respiration and the burning of fossil fuels combine with water in the atmosphere. Sulfuric acid also results […]
