Watershed Management Aeration System

Point And Non-Point Source Nutrient Management And Control For Lakes, Ponds, Rivers And Reservoirs Includes In-Site Treatment And Watershed Erosion Control

We recognize the problems created by external nutrient loading, and their effect on water quality. It is desirable to stop known sources of pollutants to the extent possible. Nutrient diversion may prevent some of the incoming nutrients from entering the water body. It does nothing to reduce nutrients already in the water body, nothing to reduce bottom muck, nothing to improve fish, and little to reduce water weeds and algae. For these reasons, CLEAN-FLO’s unique aeration system called Continuous Laminar Flow Inversion and Oxygenation is an excellent addition to any watershed management or nutrient diversion project for improved water quality.

In aquaculture, much cost and effort are put into adding nutrients to lakes and ponds throughout the world to produce fish growth. Our philosophy has become such that we do not consider nutrient loading to be a problem necessarily, but often a potential asset. Put another way, often it is not that nutrients are entering water bodies that is a problem, but how the nutrients are used in the water bodies that can become a problem. Are these nutrients producing water weeds and blue-green algae, or are they producing healthy fish?

CLEAN-FLO aeration system reduces the nutrients within a water body. CLEAN-FLO mainly diverts nutrients from feeding water weeds and algae and cycles them into the fish food chain while keeping sediment nutrients from being recycled. CLEAN-FLO aeration system counteracts eutrophication and significantly enhances recreational swimming, boating and fishing. Our integrated program, which includes the addition of natural beneficial bacteria and enzymes, accomplishes this.

Point source treatment of the watershed typically reduces nutrients in a lake by 5 percent to 35 percent. The CLEAN-FLO aeration system typically reduces nutrients in a lake by 97 percent or more at a fraction of the cost.
