Most of the natural and man-made lakes and dams are subject to the gradual accumulation of organic waste material at the bottom. Logs, dead animals, storm washouts and other materials settle at the bottom and build up a graveyard of unhealthy mass which is characterised by its total lack of oxygen, and consequent support of anaerobic pathogenic life. This accumulation progresses to the point where the whole lake dies. The dirty constitution and resulting odour makes such water unattractive and useless for aquatic life, recreational purposes, and especially as a drinking water source.

The natural solution to this problem is to be found in enhancing the oxygen levels in such lake. For this purpose special, laser-cut hoses are engineered to float at the top of the anaerobic mud located at the bottom of the lake. With a relatively small compressor assisted with ozone for automatic self-cleaning from inside the diffusing hoses, even a large and very sick lake can be restored to full aerobic health in just about ten weeks. In addition, the hoses slowly eat through the already accumulated organic waste at the rate of approximately 6" (15 cm) per year until the bottom is clear. The system also hinders any new accumulation of waste.

As a result of the remediation, aquatic life is restored, and the water becomes very clean and suitable for recreational purposes. Dissolved organic content may also drop from the typical 5 to 20 mg/L down to below 1 mg/L. Logically, if the lake is used to supply drinking water, the treatment station downstream requires much less ozone to finish the purification process and sanitize the water flow completely from all viruses, bacteria, mould and parasites.

Though this technology has been around for many decades it is not yet well known for the simple fact that it is too inexpensive and thus not as attractive to lake remediation equipment suppliers.

ECO-TEC can provide very specific and inexpensive solutions to your particular water problem.
