Oxygenation of Lakes


At certain times of the year the Stadium Golf Course tends to experience deoxygenation of its lakes due to natural causes. If not controlled, the deoxygenation of our lakes can cause algae formation and fish kills.  In order to oxygenate our lakes and reverse these natural effects we use a simple method which is includes running water through a hose into our lakes for an extended amount of time until the oxygen has fully circulated throughout the lake.  This allows the fish to receive the proper amount of oxygen needed to survive and reduces the amount of surface algae growth.
