Treatment Technology for Safe Algae Control
Algae Competition Product
Three irrigation lakes totaling approximately 30 acres receive
nutrient rich water pumped from the San Joaquin River.
The lakes are used to irrigate
1,000 acres of pistachio trees. Excess algae would have clogged the irrigation pumps and
the micro irrigation system.
Algae blooms began to appear in the lakes which inhibited
recreational activities such as boating and fishing.
Algae Treatment was added to the lakes on a weekly basis.
The algae competing microbes were
more efficient than the algae at consuming the nutrients in the lakes.
As a result, the
algae starved and decomposed naturally leaving clear water and a more balanced ecosystem.
