Case Study

Sykes Pumps aid lake regeneration

When algae in lakes bloom excessively, it can reproduce too rapidly and eventually cause the water to be full of decomposed organisms. A lack of sunlight can harm the photosynthesis process which in turn gives off carbon dioxide – causing the algae to die. This will then have direct implications for the lake itself, reducing oxygen levels below required amounts for fish and other forms of aquatic life to survive. A rise in organic matter will also lead to nutrients being released back into the lake, and this will once again trigger the beginning of this harmful cycle.
