Aeration and Bubble Curtains protect and restore your waterway
The clear blue-green waterways of the Florida Keys are what attracts so many of us to the Keys. Many homes are located on canals which are used for boat access, swimming, and fishing. However, the water quality of these canals have significantly decreased over the years with the loading of seaweed and other nutrients ultimately consuming the dissolved oxygen in these canals.
There are approximately 500 canals throughout the Florida Keys and 350 of them have been deemed impaired. Canals were originally dredged with a shallow canal mouth and a deep harbor. Over time floating weeds entered these canals and sank to the deeper areas. Due to the shallow entrance these weeds are trapped and cannot flush out during the tidal changes. As weeds collect at the bottom, the canal water changes from blue to brown, oxygen levels are depleted sometimes causing horrific odors, and loss of marine life.
