Surface Water, Waste Water & Liquid Manure/Sewage Management
For 26 years, the Little River Pond Mill® circulators
have been assisting
in the improvement of water, waste water, and liquid effluent systems
globally by enhancing
both biological and natural chemical processes in aquatic
(water based) environments (biostimulation).
The circulators are available in
(wind or solar) or electric energy source
The Little River Pond Mill® circulator is an
aquatic (water based) biogeochemical cycle remediation
facilitator/biostimulator, promoting biologically active filtration (BAF)
in surface waters, waste waters and liquid manure and sewage.
Biogeochemical remediation (BGC) is the act of improving
an environmental condition, in this case aquatic or water based, with the
assistance of biological agents such as microorganisms (BAF) and the natural
geochemical cycling processes, i.e. the carbon cycle. Biostimulation is the act
of promoting the growth of biological organisms, i.e. microorganisms.
The circulator action encourages the organisms, producers
and consumers, in the aquatic environment (lake, pond, sewage lagoon) to
increase their overall productivity. The introduction of oxygen, at the
atmosphere (air)-water interface, in conjunction with the powerful circulation,
provides an environment that enhances or improves the natural diversity in the
aquatic system by upscaling the rate and the efficiency of the naturally
occurring biogeochemical cycle (the rate and the efficiency at which energy,
nutrients, oxygen, etc. are cycled).
The ecosystem is now more balanced meaning that the
organisms within the aquatic environment are now synchronized with the
nutrients, oxygen, energy and circulation available to them and 'excesses', i.e.
algae bloom, odours, etc., should no longer pose a problem.
Prior to the introduction of circulation and surface
re-aeration, using the Little River Pond Mill® circulator,
nutrient rich organic matter settled to the bottom where anaerobic decomposition
took over. Anaerobic decomposition produces potentially toxic and foul-smelling
gases - both undesirable and potentially lethal to people, other organisms, and
to our atmosphere.
The circulation and aeration component introduced not only
allows more organisms to survive in the same amount of space, and promotes the
creation of crucial biofloc and biofilm microbial communities, but it also
promotes an increase in both species diversity and population density.
This ecosystem enhancement reduces the negative components typically observed in
stagnant aquatic ecosystems including effluent lagoons.
Some of the observed benefits include a
- noxious odours and potentially harmful gases
(including greenhouse and acid rain gases)
- biological (BOD) and chemical (COD) oxygen
- suspended solids
- pest/undesirable/harmful weed and organism
species (Eurasian Watermilfoil, mosquito larvae, e.coli)
- pollutants (hydrocarbons)
- chemical use/quantity of chemical required
- energy consumption to treat waste water and
Various factors are working together to create the
improved ecosystem effects. These factors include the presence of
circulation, competition for food, predation, the presence of oxygen,
elimination of a desired habitat, tying up of a required nutrient element(s),
exposure to sunlight (UV rays), and other factors (known/unknown).
The Little River Pond Mill® circulator is
an effective ecosystem enhancement tool that can be used to 'tailor-make' solutions in
aquatic environments - surface water, waste water and liquid manure/sewage.
Whether your desire is to enhance or maintain fish populations in a lake,
increase the survival rate and health of shrimp in a pond, reduce or eliminate
odours and solids in a sewage lagoon, or clean up a polluted aquatic
environment, the Little River Pond Mill® circulator
is an effective tool in aquatic environment management.
