Natural Treatment for Bacteria Reduction

When people think of water, they might not know about the dangers that lurk below. Pathogenic bacteria in fresh bodies like rivers, lakes, and oceans pose a greater risk for humans as these sources grow more contaminated with human waste.
Many types of pathogenic bacteria exist, including Ecoli, which has been found to cause gastrointestinal illnesses such as diarrhea, vomiting, and even death after consumption from drinking tainted waters. We hear about storms causing overflows in water treatment systems. It is no wonder concerns about bacteria in the water are at an all-time high.

Ways to Reduce Bacteria in Water

Most pathogens require an acidic to a slightly acidic environment for survival, in the pH range of 5.0-8.0, and are killed by alkaline water created after removing carbon dioxide through steps like these:
Our system increases oxygen levels throughout the entire water column and into the sediment pore water, killing many bacteria. This is because some pathogenic bacteria are anaerobes--organisms that survive in low-oxygen environments.
Pathogens are easily killed by ultraviolet light, which the sun emits. This is why only the surface water gets affected by sunlight on a typical day and not deep waters due to lack of penetration - until now! Introducing our system will bring unaffected bottom waters up to attack deadly pathogens on their turf.
The EWR system reduces carbon dioxide, phosphorus, nitrogen, and sulfur in water by a significant margin. This reduces bacteria growth, making it easier for plants and fish to grow without being threatened by harmful contaminants.
Pathogenic bacteria of the fecal type require an organic nutrient broth in order to survive. Our system allows beneficial aerobic bacteria to consume this, removing them from the water column and eliminating any possibility of thriving, thereby consuming nutrients needed for their survival.
By restoring waterways, we provide a more favorable environment for aerobic bacteria to thrive. These friendly bacterial populations then have the opportunity to starve out pathogenic strains of bacteria. This bacteria can cause environmental and human health hazards such as waterborne disease outbreaks or harmful algal blooms. Environmental Waterway Restoration creates conditions whereby some aerobic bacteria feed on pathogenic (harmful) bacteria to reduce their numbers and keep them from becoming too prevalent in our ecosystem while also lowering potential exposures around us due to contaminated water sources like lakes rivers, or wetlands.
