Effective Microorganisms® enhance the diversity of microorganisms in aquatic environments. In polluted aquatic environments, species cannot survive in a degraded environment. This continues to make the environment worse and generally build up sludge and algae. EM-1® adds diversity and increases native microorganisms to create a rich, self-purifying ecosystem where clean water will eventually return.

Oceans and waterways will all require their own unique protocols. Please contact us to discuss and decided the best route. If you're working with a smaller or more enclosed aquatic environment you can use the recommendations below.
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.
Whether used in composting or directly added to your garden's soil,
EM Bokashi replaces chemical fertilizers with a biodynamic, non-GMO alternative that boosts plant health and production.
