Flocculants are very effective to reduce the suspended solids in the water. Having high suspended solids can cause issues such as stratification, increased temperature, decreased primary production, lower dissolved oxygen levels and increased health risk for fish. Flocculants will bind with suspended solids to create larger clumps that sink to the bottom for natural pond biological microorganisms to break down. removing them from the water column stops problems such as blocking of light, floating carriers for diseases and layering of temperature due to density differences in the water. Settled solids can be collected, just left at the bottom or further treated with enzyme treatments to speed up the decomposition process.
