Pond Oxygenation Workshop: Learning Through Case Studies

November 8, 2023
There are many strategies to combat poor water quality that depend on the biology and nutrient inputs of each pond. This workshop, experts addressed a specific technology, oxygenation, that aims to manage algae by adding oxygen to the water column. The workshop touched on the few examples where oxygen has been circulated in ponds on Cape Cod (Santuit Pond, Mashpee & Skinequit Pond, Harwich), but focused on Oxygen Saturation Technology (OST) that oxygenates the bottom water layer of ponds without water mixing. Data and lessons learned from lakes and ponds where OST has been implemented both locally (Sarah’s Pond, Orleans) and in California will be used to discuss the feasibility of OST to address poor water quality in Cape Cod’s freshwater ponds.....Learn more
