For 26 years, the Little River Pond Mill® circulators have been assisting in the improvement of water, waste water, and liquid effluent systems globally by enhancing both biological and natural chemical processes in aquatic (water based) environments (biostimulation).

The circulators are available in either renewable (wind or solar) or electric energy source models.

The Little River Pond Mill® circulator is an aquatic (water based) biogeochemical cycle remediation facilitator/biostimulator, promoting biologically active filtration (BAF) in surface waters, waste waters and liquid manure and sewage.

Biogeochemical remediation (BGC) is the act of improving an environmental condition, in this case aquatic or water based, with the assistance of biological agents such as microorganisms (BAF) and the natural geochemical cycling processes, i.e. the carbon cycle. Biostimulation is the act of promoting the growth of biological organisms, i.e. microorganisms.

The circulator action encourages the organisms, producers and consumers, in the aquatic environment (lake, pond, sewage lagoon) to increase their overall productivity. The introduction of oxygen, at the atmosphere (air)-water interface, in conjunction with the powerful circulation, provides an environment that enhances or improves the natural diversity in the aquatic system by upscaling the rate and the efficiency of the naturally occurring biogeochemical cycle (the rate and the efficiency at which energy, nutrients, oxygen, etc. are cycled).

The ecosystem is now more balanced meaning that the organisms within the aquatic environment are now synchronized with the nutrients, oxygen, energy and circulation available to them and 'excesses', i.e. algae bloom, odours, etc., should no longer pose a problem.

Prior to the introduction of circulation and surface re-aeration, using the Little River Pond Mill® circulator, nutrient rich organic matter settled to the bottom where anaerobic decomposition took over. Anaerobic decomposition produces potentially toxic and foul-smelling gases - both undesirable and potentially lethal to people, other organisms, and to our atmosphere.

The circulation and aeration component introduced not only allows more organisms to survive in the same amount of space, and promotes the creation of crucial biofloc and biofilm microbial communities, but it also promotes an increase in both species diversity and population density.  This ecosystem enhancement reduces the negative components typically observed in stagnant aquatic ecosystems including effluent lagoons.

Some of the observed benefits include a reduction/elimination of/in:

  • noxious odours and potentially harmful gases (including greenhouse and acid rain gases)
  • biological (BOD) and chemical (COD) oxygen demands
  • suspended solids
  • pest/undesirable/harmful weed and organism species (Eurasian Watermilfoil, mosquito larvae, e.coli)
  • pollutants (hydrocarbons)
  • chemical use/quantity of chemical required
  • energy consumption to treat waste water and liquid effluent

Various factors are working together to create the improved ecosystem effects.  These factors include the presence of circulation, competition for food, predation, the presence of oxygen, elimination of a desired habitat, tying up of a required nutrient element(s), exposure to sunlight (UV rays), and other factors (known/unknown).

The Little River Pond Mill® circulator  is an effective ecosystem enhancement tool that can be used to 'tailor-make' solutions in aquatic environments - surface water, waste water and liquid manure/sewage.  Whether your desire is to enhance or maintain fish populations in a lake, increase the survival rate and health of shrimp in a pond, reduce or eliminate odours and solids in a sewage lagoon, or clean up a polluted aquatic environment, the Little River Pond Mill® circulator is an effective tool in aquatic environment management.
