EUTRO-CLEAR for Ponds and EUTRO-CLEAR for wastewater are pro-biotic formulas for the bioremediation of ponds, is standardized at a total
endospore count of 5 billion CFU /gm, which will multiply in a bucket to 150
billion CFU/gm in 18 hours.
Two (2) lbs. of this microbial formulation, hydrated in water, will inoculate a
1 acre pond to many thousand times more than the bacterial biota normally
found in a water column (Winogradsky et.) and out compete all the naturally
occurring bacteria, including pathogenic gram negatives (E.coli).
These select facultative heterotrophic bacteria, augmented into the water
column, have specific talents to generate enzymes, lignin, lipid and
cellulose degraders which are responsible for the accelerated reduction of
TSS (suspended solids) and FOG (fats, oils and grease). The microbes ingest carbon, nitrogen, phosphorous at a ratio of 100:10:4.
Ortho-phosphate, a primary nutrient, is reduced by the conversion to ATP
within these microbes (Krebbs et.) with alkalinity greater than 1500 mg/l
and a pH of greater than 7.2 the deceased microbes will form an insoluable
This kind of phosphate will precipitate out of the
water column and cease to be bio-available.
Oxygen is important only in the higher levels of a natural water column,
benthic regions are populated by obligate anaerobes responsible for the
digestion of sludge, anaerobic digestion, this the natural way of converting
nitrates (a primary nutrient) to nitrous oxide gas, returning nitrogen back
to the atmosphere.
Oxygen applied to the lower levels of a natural lake or
an old established pond are typical erroneous methods employed by engineering firms.
D.O. greater than 1.8mg/l will disinfect (kill) obligate anaerobes
(beneficial bacteria) and methanogens (swamp gas) will be generated.
Augmented facultative heterotrophic bacteria settling into these benthic
regions will speed up sludge digestion and reduce odors by using an
alternate electron acceptor other than oxygen.
Overall, bio-augmentation will reduce nutrient levels, thus reduce the risk
of eutrophication and algal blooms.
