Pond Muck Removal In The Southeast Michigan: Oakland and Macomb County - Metamora, Columbus, Oxford and Armada

 

What is Muck?

 

Pond Muck is the dead organic debris, accumulating on your pond’s bottom, that you often feel between your toes when you step in. Over time, muck can build 6” or more if left untreated. The slow decomposition of this Pond Muck is also responsible for the rotten egg smell you may experience, as gas is being released. While we do not dredge ponds, we do offer multiple muck reductions methods to clear your water and rid the pond bottom of excess muck. Contact us today to learn more about pond much removal.

How We Remove Muck

Biological Control: As part of a proactive pond-lake management approach we utilize regular applications of beneficial bacteria to break down this muck into a harmless gas, which can be circulated from the pond. The addition of this type of bacteria speeds up the decomposition process, clearing murky water and returning your pond bottom back to its natural clay/sand base.

 

Aeration: Oxygen circulation is also important. By installing an aeration system you can force water movement at the pond’s bottom where it is needed most. This brings oxygen down to the bottom of the pond, allowing beneficial bacteria to flourish and bring toxic gases to the surface to be released from the pond.

 

Physical Raking and Debris Removal: While raking a pond won’t get rid of the bulk of pond muck, pulling dead weeds, algae and decaying leaves from the pond will aid in slowing down muck build-up.
