If I told you that your lake was being slowly polluted...
Then if I said that this pollution had been happening for weeks, months, years, or maybe even decades, you would probably think I was exaggerating. Except I'm not. In actual fact I'd be talking about the process known as eutrophication.
If your lake has suffered algae blooms, low dissolved oxygen levels and excessive weed growth, this could be down to eutrophication. This occurs when nutrients leak into the water over a long period of time.
In the following pages you will find out how, and why this occurs, what we can do to help protect your waters, and more to the point, how simple and cost effective preventative work actually is.
