Why does a reservoir need aeration?
Reservoirs can be used for a number of reasons, such as;
- Water supply
- Hydroelectric power
- Flood control
Water health in a reservoir is incredibly important
Keeping our reservoirs healthy is extremely important as many regions in the UK now rely heavily on the water these reservoirs hold. Reservoirs should always have good circulation of oxygenated water and they should always be adequately monitored to ensure they are in the best condition possible.
A reservoir with poor aeration will become ecologically imbalanced and not fit for purpose. It may suffer from excessive plant growth and vegetation, which in turn will lead to foul odours and cloudy or discoloured water that looks and smells unattractive.
Heathland Fountains can provide a variety of reservoir aeration options to keep your reservoir aerated and in overall good health. Our range of reservoir aerators are available as;
- Floating Aerators - surface aeration
- Diffused Aerators - circulating water from the reservoir bed which aerates at the same time.
Heathland Fountains is able to provide the perfect aeration system for your reservoir aeration needs. We have many years experience working with aeration and all of the calculations relating to your aeration requirement are made in-house to provide you with the right piece of equipment for your reservoir's water management requirements.
