Solar BioHaven is a game-changer in treating Harmful Algae Blooms, even Golden Algae
We calculate that 3,200 lbs of phosphorus would be removed by 1,500 m2 of aerated BioHavens and would equate to the removal of about 3.6 million lbs/yr of algae or 1,600 metric tons/yr.
What are Harmful Algae Blooms (HABs)?
HABs are caused when too many nutrients present in the water overtax the ability of the natural system to remove them. Many bodies of water receive inflow from agriculture, stormwater management, septic systems or landscaping, which carries an unnaturally high nutrient load making them susceptible to HABs. HABs affect municipal waterways and recreational ponds as well as large lakes and have become a global environmental problem.
HABs are harmful to aquatic life, animals, and even humans. An algae bloom is usually offensive, creating unpleasant smells and turning water green and cloudy. HABs can also result in fines and citations from environmental regulatory authorities.
Does your lake have an issue with HABs?
Consider funding the solution with a Solar BioHaven Installation.
