Taking care of your lake or pond for summer:
Summer is here and it is bringing the heat. The long days of summer expose your pond to the strong rays of the sun for longer periods of time. This causes the water temperatures to rise which can cause several problems like fish kills, algae blooms, and water stratification. In this article, we’ll go over potential problems that may arise during the summer and what you can do about them.
Warm water holds less oxygen making it harder for the fish in your pond to breathe. The stress of trying to find oxygen can lead to the development of diseases, while the lack of oxygen can cause the fish to suffocate, ultimately killing them.
During the long days of summer, you may also see a bloom in algae. While algae is essential to your pond’s health, an excess of algae can quickly cover the surface of the water making the pond look unappealing and further reducing the oxygen in the water.
Stratification happens when bodies of water have no natural movement in the water causing it to separate into layers because of changes in temperatures. This leads to the warmer oxygen-rich water to separate to the surface and the colder less oxygen-rich water to settle on the bottom. Stratification can cause fish to die and make it hard for beneficial bacteria to break down excess nutrients.
