Surface Water Treatment

One of the most effective management strategies for controlling nuisance aquatic plants is chemical control. In a balanced ecosystem, aquatic vegetation can be desirable, but when the aquatic vegetation reaches nuisance levels, it can affect property values, aquatic ecosystems and can interfere with recreational activities.

Lonza Water Treatment has the expertise to specify the right product for treating drinking water reservoirs, irrigation systems, aquaculture (fish hatcheries), wastewater, golf courses, livestock tanks and other lakes and ponds.

Teaming with leading universities, Lonza supports research efforts and innovation in investigating the environmental fate, toxicity and efficacy when applying various algaecide and herbicide formulations. Investments are also made in new chemistries, application technologies, and technical resources in the subject of algae and cyanobacteria management.
