Water Quality Monitoring & Evaluation
South African waterways are experiencing pollution from many sources. Unreliable sewerage works, industrial effluent and other point sources can contaminate receiving waters with serious consequences for the various water user groups. Envirokonsult’s scientists monitor pollution in the water environment and design and implement suitable rehabilitation programmes to restore water bodies to its former splendour. We design and implement water quality monitoring networks and investigate environmental disasters, industrial spills and fish kills. Read more ...
Golf Course Pond Management
Most golf course managers experience some sort of problem with the management of their impoundments. Well managed watercourse ponds are a great asset to a golf course, but a neglected pond can be an embarrassment. Problems encountered with golf course ponds range from leakage, water quality problems, excessive growth of algae and other aquatic weeds and high turbidity, to offensive odours. Envirokonsult‘s Lake Management Programme for Golf Course Ponds is the solution for the professional golf course manager.
A healthy and diverse fish population is an important part of creating an environmentally balanced lake. ENVIROKONSULT™ can analyze your needs and provide an appropriate stocking programme. Lakes with weed problems may benefit from our Integrated Aquatic Vegetation Management Plans, utilizing a combination of selective herbicide applications and the possible introduction of Triploid (sterile) Grass Carp, an herbivorous fish incapable to multiply but feeds on aquatic weeds over a long period. ENVIROKONSULT™ can also investigate fish kills and evaluate hatchery conditions for trout farmers.
Goose & Wildlife Management
Large numbers of geese, especially Egyptian geese can create a mess on and around lakes and golf courses. Excessive numbers of geese also contribute to the enrichment of ponds with nutrients, which leads to water quality problems such as algal blooms and aquatic weed proliferation. One adult bird can contribute 10mg of phosphate to a water body per day. ENVIROKONSULT™ makes use of environmentally friendly methods to repel geese without any harm to children, pets, wildlife, vegetation, water or...the geese!!
Black Fly & Mosquito Control
Ponds and lakes are natural habitats for mosquitoes and black flies. Controlling these pests involves limiting conditions in the habitat that they find most accommodating, such as stagnant water and substrate to breed. We also make use of a range of pesticides and the application of environmentally friendly biological control products. ENVIROKONSULT™ will determine the underlying causes of your pest infestation and develop a management plan to keep these pests under control. Read more ...
