Lake & Pond Restoration

The GES Difference

Maintaining and improving lake and pond water quality is a great challenge. Poor water quality results from inorganic and organic pollutant build-up combined with sunlight. Fertilizer run-off increases nitrogen and phosphorous levels causing algae blooms. Algae reduction and algae removal are the most common solutions for excess inorganic nutrients.

Organic pollutants include; dead leaves, fish and wildlife waste, & partially treated sewage. Over time these pollutants form an anaerobic sludge blanket. The sludge blanket builds and depletes oxygen in the lake or pond, causing odors and potential algae blooms. Lack of oxygen causes odor problems (sulfide smell) and increases the risk of fish mortality.

Water Clarity Improvement

As an industry leader, GES provides safe, environmentally friendly solutions for water clarity problems. GES technology is based on bio-augmentation which adds safe, naturally occurring bacteria to water to reduce pollution and restore lakes and ponds to their natural balance.

Reducing Nitrogen and Phosphorous Pollution in Lakes and Ponds

To restore a lake or pond to its natural beauty, both inorganic (nitrogen and phosphorous) and organic pollutants must be reduced. The LLMO System diverse mix of beneficial, non-toxic microbes handles all of these problems. The removal of inorganic nutrients leads to dramatic reduction of odor and improved water clarity. LLMO contains the right mix of natural bacteria to degrade the most complex organic build-up found in lakes and ponds.

On-site preparation of LLMO products is especially important when treating large lakes or streams. Without on-site prep (also called “bacterial activation”), the LLMO bacteria might not be active or numerous enough to get the job done economically in large aquatic systems. GES will recommend the products and equipment needed to treat an aquatic system of any size.

The GES lake and pond restoration system is generally used without On-Site Preparation in small systems. Typically, if a pond is 50 to 50,000 gallons (189 to 189,000 liters), "ready-to-use" LLMO N1 is dosed to the pond. Large ponds (up to any size) generally use on-site preparation.

Whether your lake or pond is large or small, GES has the best treatment option available. Always consult GES or an authorized distributor or agent for dose rate for a specific application.
