Pollution in Lakes

Information & Methods of Control

Water pollution has jumped to the forefront recently with pollution in lakes being a hot topic due to enforcement of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The EPA's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program controls point source discharges.

The predominant source of lake area pollution is through nonpoint source pollution which is generated from urban runoff or simply blown into the water.

They are many resources to find out more about water pollution prevention.

The EPA has a floatable action plan which is outlined for every region. The State of Louisiana nonpoint source Wetlands Research and our own Pollution Resources section is very helpful too.

 

Methods to Control Water Pollution:

Lake Pollution Oil Boom There are several ways to control pollution entering the lakes and the use of oil spill cleanup boom and equipment will control oil sheen and spills on the surface of a lake and allow for easy oil cleanup.

If there is a concern with invasive plants the use of Aquatic Plant Control boom and nets to control lake pollution will help contain these (some examples are water hyacinth islands, water lettuce, duck weed, etc). These types of invasive plants can be mechanically harvested easily once directed to a shoreline or economically treated with herbicides where appropriate.

 

Floatable Debris Litter pollution in the form of plastic and styrofoam pollution is prevalent as beach pollution on most stormwater retention lakes. Retrieve trash and floatable debris once corralled by a floating boom is simple. Simply direct the litter to the shoreline where it can be economically collected in a net system or removed with a skimmer.

 

Lake Pollution turbidity curtain During marine construction activities marine pollution can be avoide by using turbidity curtain to control in-water plumes of silt of suspended sediments.

Using these simple water pollution solutions are an economical way for pollution prevention.
