Issue

Eutrophication

Insufficient water quality due to a nutrient overkill.

Water with lots of nutrition causes a low chemical quality. Because of this, duckweed and algae arise.

Solution

Flushing with nutrient-poor water

Letting water with low nutrient levels into the water discharge system, ensures that the nutrient-rich water leaves the system. The combination of less nutrients with a shorter residence time leads to a reduction of duckweed and algae.
