Notable Improvement in Water Quality – What a Pond Assessment Before and After PondHawk Installation Revealed
Author(s): LINNE Industries primary research
Summary: In this edition of BRIEFS, we deliver the results from our own PondHawk field research. We collected water quality data from the ponds of one of our repeat customers, a Midwest municipal golf course. The course has installed 15 PondHawk systems – five per year since 2018.
In August 2020, LINNE Industries learned that this client had procured a comprehensive assessment of their golf course ponds in 2018, just a few months before installing their first five PondHawk systems. The objective of their research was to understand the baseline conditions and provide best management solutions for the development of an operations and maintenance plan. The baseline data was collected and analyzed by STONE Environmental Engineering & Science, Inc. (STONE) and included measuring temperature, total phosphorus and nitrogen, dissolved oxygen, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, turbidity, conductivity, sediment buildup, and observational data.
