There are challenges for deep water anti-pollution trawlers. But at least the work is getting done. It will more than likely not ever be possible to place such vessels on the oceans as it is far too vast. That is a pity, given the precarious state of the oceans today. Nevertheless, specially developed trawlers or boats are being placed on deep water lakes to help clean them. There are positive results to show that the work being done is effective.
But custodians of your lakes manmade or far out in nature public and natural springs and streams, park ponds and rivulets have found it a lot more challenging to clean all these much-needed resources at the shallowest end. Already developed aeration pumps could not be placed at shallow spots. Apart from the work being cumbersome, it was just not logistically possible. But fortunately, specially prepared aeration pumps for lakes have been designed, developed and manufactured.
These pumps are a lot smaller than the deep water predecessors. They are small enough to access shallow portions of lakes, rivers and ponds. Needless to say, these are not lightweight vessels. The pumps are still going to be carrying out heavy duty work, given the ongoing precariousness of polluted rivers and lakes. But these pumps are allowing its users to make light of very heavy work. And those custodians who have already bought into this sustainable practice are finding it quite easy to manage these vessels.
They are easy to transport and maintain. They are easy for environmental cleanup technicians to use as well. These pumps do have high work rates, so it’s useful to know that custodians can rest easy in the knowledge that extensive lake, dam and river cleaning projects can continue forthwith.
