In lagoons, ponds, rivers, and waterways EM-1® adds diversity and increases native microorganisms to create a rich, self-purifying ecosystem where clean water will eventually return.

The Paseo de los Lagos is a scenic complex with three beautiful lakes and gardens that attract many tourists. The first lake was formed by an old 19th century textile company who built a dam to generate electricity. Once closed, the lake was abandoned until Governor Rafael Murillo Vidal took over beautifying the area and adding two more lakes.
However problems started to appear without proper care of the water. They experienced odor problems, black murky water, eutrophication (too nutrient rich), sick aquatic life, and an accumulation of sludge. They decided to get help from the local EM Partner in Mexico and clean up the lakes.
For an initial shock treatment: 2500 L/ha/month of Activated EM-1® for 3 months.
Maintenance Treatment: 300 L/ha/month of Activated EM-1® for 4 months.
Quote from local State Attorney's Office; "The lakes have been in this terrible condition of decomposition and diminished water quality for decades. Today, the bad odors were eliminated in just a few months of work. Additionally, the lake's color scale indicates and improvement, and the aquatic life is proliferating"

Before treating, it is important to find the source contaminating the water and depending on the condition it can take several months to fully recover. The above project used Activated EM-1® which requires some labor and time before it's ready to use. TeraGanix has made this step easier by providing ready-to-use activated products for water treatment. The below suggestions used our Wt1000™ in place of Activated EM-1®.
For Maintenance: Use the chart below
Poor Condition: Start with a rate of 1:10,000 (100 gallons per acre foot) of Wt1000™ per month.
Very Poor Condition: 1:10,000 of Wt1000™ twice a month
EM® Mudballs are increasingly being used around the world to help treat polluted waters. Especially in Japan, home of EMRO, throwing mudballs into lakes, rivers, and waterways draw large crowds. Generally, polluted rivers accumulate sludge and have little to no oxygen.
By throwing EM® Mudballs they become embedded in the surface of the sludge and effective fermentation bacteria start to decompose the sludge. In addition, phototrophic bacteria consume harmful gasses and rid the water of foul odors.

In ponds and lagoons, the beneficial microbes in Wt1000™
can prevent slime and algae growth and maintain pristine water.
Wt1000™ can be used in a variety of other systems such as portable toilets, septic systems, waste lagoons, composting, water features and for livestock odors.
EM-1® Microbial Inoculant, is a liquid bacterial product comprising three groups of beneficial microbes: Yeast, Photosynthetic Bacteria, and Lactic Acid Bacteria. They work together with local and native beneficial microbes, creating a synergy among microorganisms and larger forms of life including insects and worms.
