How the Aeration Process Works

Lake Bed Aeration is the introduction of compressed air to a water body. When released at the bottom of a pond or lake, compressed air naturally begins to migrate towards the surface of the water. As air travels up the water column the pressure surrounding the bubbles slowly decreases causing the bubbles to increase in size -- a slight current begins to develop. The current draws oxygen-depleted water from the bottom and transports it to the surface.  This action protects fish, aquatic organisms and beneficial bacteria from suffocation by breaking down stratified waters while increasing dissolved oxygen levels.  Unlike a sewerage digester, in a pond/lake, the greatest portion of the oxygen transfer takes place as the bottom water spreads across the surface and exchanges gases with the atmosphere.  The actual transfer of oxygen from the bubbles is quite insignificant.
