Preventing Algae Impact and Safeguarding the Environment and Infrastructure
Effectively preventing algae blooms is crucial for preserving the environment. It's equally essential for the efficient operation and maintenance of treatment plants and equipment.
Wastewater treatment facilities, tasked with returning water to its natural state, often struggle with harmful algae outbreaks in reservoirs and holding ponds. Under specific conditions, like warmer climates and nutrient-rich waters, these blue-green algae can thrive. They disrupt the treatment process, increasing oxygen demand, suspended solids, and the accumulation of sludge. The toxins they release pose risks to humans and wildlife, as well as cause unpleasant odours.
Traditional solutions such as filtration, algaecides, and aeration devices fall short in achieving the desired results. But at Arc Integrated Systems, we provide a number of solutions that can prevent algae blooms effectively at water treatment and wastewater facilities in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and across the UK.
