I own a business which restores privately owned and municipal / recreational water bodies and drinking water reservoirs through all natural means Including engineered Bio-Augmentation and ecological Bio-Mimicry. I utilize local water body restoration projects as part of my teaching practice as i am a NYS Certified Earth Science and Environmental Science teacher (7-12th grade). I bring real world and hands-on application of Environmental / Earth Science / Biology into my classroom through Aquatic Restoration activities in the field.
As Senior Lake Restoration Consultant for Lake-Savers, a long-standing business partnership with John Tucci, President of Lake-Savers and I have combined resources from both our company’s in which we have many large and smaller scale projects to date. We are the largest and most successful lake restoration company in the United States.
We have data which supports our restoration effort’s of water bodies through biologically promoting ‘Re-Oligotrophication’ A return to a pristine state. We achieve this through reversing the trophic status of a degraded and dying water body to a healthy or “pristine” and vibrant / balanced water body through biological augmentation and ecological engineering, as a valid and achievable process and art. Our process advances and model’s our assertion that “We bring life back to the lake and the lake in turn, comes back to life”.
We employ ecological and natural process engineering, mimicking nature and enhance aquatic biology to balance and re-institute ecological and biological homeostasis as well as enhancing natural/physical mechanisms through ecological bio-mimicry. Ultimatley we repair and increase the essential foundations for biological/ecological food-web pathways as I maintain is an art, as well as a science.
Recently, we have been researching the use of Nano particle sized biologically available Silica with trace minerals/micro-nutrient’s to successfully promote prolific and sustained siliceous diatom blooms within lakes. This has had very positive and immediately observable effect, leading to results which include providing Dissolved Oxygen at the benthic and super-saturating the water-column beyond thermal density gradient’s. We believe this is responsible for significantly diminishing blooms of filimentous, planktonic and Blue Green algae within lakes. Ultimately what this biological additive provides for is nutrient competition, in diverting Phosphorous and Nitrogen within the water column as well as in benthic accumulations. Our processes are entirely scalable.
Restoring lakes, Ponds and Reservoir’s through Engineered biological augmentation. Reversing the trophic index of Hyper-Eutrophic lakes… naturally. Re-Oligitrophication is our very unique specialty. In practice for over 25 years. Increase depth of up to one foot per year, bloom Siliceouse Diatoms, increase D.O. beyond thermal water densities throughout the entire water column. Restore health and vitality through scalar engineering to moving water bodies as well as in Lakes well over 1000 surface acre’s in size. Removal of up to 90 percent of internal Phosphorous, complete the nitrogen cycle and enhance the trophic food web from it’s foundation..up. We’re highly specialized and are unique beyond comparison. www.aquaticrestorationllc.com & www.lake-savers.com
