Nutrient Reduction & Removal

Harmful algal blooms are a major environmental problem in Ohio and most of the 50 states. Across the world harmful algal blooms are known as red tides, blue-green algae or cyanobacteria. Harmful algal blooms have severe impacts on our environment and our health.


Nutrient pollutants often enter waters like ditches, creeks and streams and then flow into larger water bodies like lakes and rivers. We’ve seen Harmful Algal Bloom problems at Ohio's Grand Lake St. Mary's in Celina, Ohio and Ohio's great lake, Lake Erie, as well as along the Ohio river.


Environmental Remediation Contractor has been actively working on this nutrient runoff problem for years and are installing a proven technology in the field to reduce nutrient runoff. We utilize a publicly available software that guides us to Nutrient Reduction and Removal through Dissolved Reactive Phosphorous (DRP) Filtering. 

The Nutrient Reduction and Removal problem is:

 Too many nutrients/nutrient overload

  Non-point source regulation

  Western Lake Erie basin has huge algal blooms

  650 miles of Ohio river contaminated

  Dissolved Reactive Phosphorous versus total Phosphorus


Current Best Management Practices (BMP) are not enough. Planting cover crops and adding filter strips are a great start, but much more needs done. Conventional BMP does little for Dissolved Phosphorous. Soils built up with “legacy” Phosphorous will continue to release dissolved phosphorous for years.
