Permanent water maintenance

Pollutant control, water conservation, prevention of fish kills.

Deidesheim: The park lake has a shallow water depth and too many nutrients - they are brought in from the neighbouring vineyards. Conversion of organic matter and decomposition of digested sludge prevent the formation of new gases that are harmful to the climate - control of pollutants in the sediment aims to preserve the water body.

Durable phosphate binding

Pollutants and nutrients are bound in the sediment:

Aerobic bacteria need phosphorus to be able to process organic matter. After mineralisation, the phosphates are then deposited in the sediment bound to lime, iron and the like. There they remain permanently bound as long as oxygen is present in the water body.

Climate change with consequences - increased temperatures lead to oxygen deficiency

Oxygen and phosphate - interrelationships briefly explained:

Which products have been used?

In the Deidesheim park pond, a total of 350 m of Drausy® system hose was deployed over the entire area - the water body is heavily polluted, so the aeration section had to be tightly meshed.
