Freshwater Remediation Testimonial

Beginning in 1999, Big Elk Meadows contracted with BioLynceus® for the purpose of improving the water quality of our lakes, which are the source of our drinking water.

During 1999, we began treating our lakes which were in an unhealthy state with BioLynceus® ProBiotic Scrubber® I. In mid-summer the lakes would develop a sewage odor and turn dark in color. After one year of treatment we noticed a reduction in odor and in the dark layer deposit on the lake bottoms.

During 2000, a hot, dry spring and summer create an excessive algae bloom that killed over 1,000 fish. Even though we were late in starting PBI treatment, we were able to reduce the algae odor in our lakes.

During 2001, we began treatments early spring and were able to adequately control the algae bloom in most of the lakes. There was no fish loss and the quality of our drinking water was improved significantly.

During 2002, we began ProBiotic Scrubber® I application in early spring with a more aggressive treatment schedule. The year 2002 was a critical time for our lakes, as their depths were several feet lower than normal due to the record hot and dry weather.

We were able to control the algae bloom in all lakes and did not lose any fish. The dark layer deposit continues to subside in all lakes and our last lake in our chain of lakes has the appearance of an unspoiled alpine lake.

Rick Allen and BioLynceus® have been instrumental in assisting us with the remediation of our fresh water lake system.
