Worldwide Leader of Algae Control Covers

IEC has been a worldwide leader in wastewater treatment for over 20 years, and we continue to invest in cutting-edge technologies to provide the most efficient and cost-effective cover solutions possible. Our approach is based on using innovative technologies as standalone solutions or integrating them into a comprehensive process that meets every challenge from influent to effluent.

Our experience and technology portfolio makes us the ideal partner for municipalities and businesses looking for an effective and environmentally responsible solution for wastewater treatment.

How Algae Mitigation Control Covers Work

Uncovered open basins can create uncontrolled algae blooms that cause TSS excursions, odor issues, and discharge violations. IEC algae mitigation control covers work by blocking off sunlight, which prevents algae from photosynthesizing and growing. Our algae control covers provide an effective way to prevent fluid loss due to evaporation and eliminate algae growth.

Algae control is an important part of keeping a pond healthy. In high densities, algae can bloom and discolor the water, out-compete other life forms, poison, or asphyxiate them. As mentioned earlier, algae growing in any aerated lagoon systems, ponds, reservoirs, or wastewater treatment plants can and often will increase both the TSS and the CBOD5 of the effluent. This can cause BOD and TSS levels to rise over the effluent permits and result in unwanted fines. Excess algae can also create nuisance surface scum, poor water clarity, and noxious odors. Taking steps to control algae with our algae prevention reservoir covers is essential for keeping your pond or reservoir healthy and looking great.

Additionally, our algae control pond covers can reduce chemical demand and improve water quality by preventing contamination from bird droppings, airborne particulates, dead animals pollen, and other potential pollutants.
