Prevent and control harmful blue-green algae blooms

Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) typically require warm waters, high nutrient availability (primarily soluble inorganic phosphorus and nitrogen), sunlight, and stagnant waters. Efforts to control cyanobacteria blooms through nutrient limitation have been spotty at best, in part because of the difficulty of controlling non-point sources such as agricultural and stormwater runoff, as well as the impacts of rapid urban development. The most consistently effective approach for cyanobacteria bloom control has been with the prevention of stagnation of epilimnetic waters through SolarBee circulation. The combination of horizontal and vertical mixing sufficiently disrupts the cyanobacteria’s preferred quiescent habitat, negating their competitive advantage over beneficial algae and preventing unwanted blooms, even in nutrient-rich waters such as secondary wastewater effluent and storm water drainage.
