As lake managers we are constantly asked what do do about the nuisance pond algae that troubles so many waterbodies. Simple, one word: Aeration. A pond aeration system is the single most valuable tool in water quality management and will on its own mitigate more water quality problems in fresh water lakes and ponds than any other management tool available. Do we have other means to deal with algae? Yes, but none better than aeration.
The best approach is the integration of multiple strategies into a comprehensive lake management plan, but the best starting point will always a pond aerator!
