Lakes are vigorous water filled inland aquatic systems of variable sizes having localized basin, surrounded by land and any direct exchange with sea and ocean. These can be shallow or deep, permanent or temporary filled with fresh or salt water and have a special eminence among global freshwater resources. World’s lakes have four times more water than rivers, hence are very important and crucial natural resource to be taken care of. In current scenario, most of the lakes are facing great degradation pressure and threat of eutrophication or extinction because of heavy load of pollution and contaminations from multiple sources.
In lakes, water reservoirs and public waters, the growth of blue- green algae presents a global problem. These types of algae represent a group of bacteria known as cyanobacteria, which give rise to a distinct foul odour and are also known to produce toxins. Each year, numerous lakes are forced to close for recreational and other uses due to the growth of blue-green algae.
Membrane Group in association with its Global Technology Partners, can provide solution for controlling and monitoring the growth of Algae and Biofouling in Lakes and Water bodies using Ultrasonic Algae Control Device.
