Bioremediation of water, lakes, and reservoirs
The contamination of settling ponds and water reservoirs in the era of intensive industrial development is has become an everyday occurrence. Industrial reservoirs and settling ponds degrade and require periodic sediment extraction and cleaning. On the other hand, with natural water reservoirs, most often the deterioration of the physico-chemical and hygienic-sanitary water parameters is caused by an of excess of biogenic compounds; this leads to eutrophication and massive algae blooms. The algae die off that inevitably follows the bloom in turn contributes to a secondary pollution of the waters. This forms a vicious circle, and the biological balance of the reservoir is effectively destroyed.
