The Challenge: Control Cyanobacteria concentration
To ensure that the concentration of cyanobacteria remained at an acceptable level at a popular public open space with two lakes used for water skiing, fishing and sailing. There has been a historic problem of high levels of cyanobacteria in both lakes, especially over the summer when use of the site is at its highest. Any elevated levels of cyanobacteria could result in restricted use of the lakes, and the site in general, by members of the public and the lake users.
The Solution: Environmentally friendly sound waves
Four MPC-Buoy systems where installed to control the cyanobacteria levels in the lake. The MPC-Buoy combines low-power ultrasonic sound waves with water quality monitoring to provide complete and environmentally friendly algae solution.
The Results: Cyanobacteria successful controlled
Since the ultrasound units have been installed there hasn’t been a problem with raised levels of cyanobacteria and the lakes have remained open to all users, without the need to restrict how the clubs operate.
