Waterbodies that are healthy and balanced have two components: dissolved carbon dioxide and oxygen. Both are essential to plant and animal health. A stressed ecosystem can result if the water bodies are too high in either. Both are vital for ecosystem health, and for overall ecosystem function. Both chemicals, pollutants, and biological matter can have a positive impact on human health. Both of these conditions can be exacerbated often by human activities.
India's waterbodies have been declining in numbers. In 1960, Bangalore had 262 lakes. The city today has only ten lakes. Ahmedabad now has 65 fewer lakes than it did in 2001. Hyderabad has lost three thousand hectares (more than 3,000 hectares) of wetlands over the last 12 year, which has limited the waterbodies' ability to provide various services. Even though there are sufficient laws to protect waterbodies in place, these regulations are often inadequate.
These detailed, process-based lake models offer a promising way to understand the functions of lakes. These models are based on hydrodynamics, ecosystem functioning, as well sediment processes. Recent research has used lake restoration models with sediment diagenetics. Managers can use these models to better plan their restoration efforts. These two methods can often be used together. These combined approaches increase the likelihood for successful lake restoration. Stakeholder groups, scientists, managers and managers should be included in a comprehensive approach for lake restoration.
Waterbodies management is an important part of environmental management. There are many factors that play a part in maintaining healthy waterbodies. These include pH, conductivity and dissolved oxygen. For the health of the waterbodies, it is important to evaluate the results of this monitoring. A waterbody must be free from algae and other harmful organisms to be considered healthy.
The restoration of a lake can take many months or even years. It's therefore important to know the specific challenges faced. Most cases the difficulties are a combination installation and design issues. Below are some common issues that must be resolved. These are the biggest challenges restoration projects will face. After you've understood the process and what it entails, you can decide if it's right to do it in your area.
For the good of aquatic life, it is crucial to have healthy and balanced waterbodies. Unchecked growth of aquatic plants can lead to overpopulation and a hostile environment for fish. When algae blooms in excess, both aquatic plants and algae produce oxygen via photosynthesis. Eutrophication can occur naturally or by human intervention.
Whatever the method, the ultimate goal is to lower the levels of nitrogen and/or phosphorus in the lake. Although there are many options for controlling nutrients at point and distant sources, it is not likely that the water will have enough nutrients to support a successful restoration. Although this value is likely to vary from lake to lake, it should not exceed 0.05 mg/l-1 for phosphorus or nitrogen in winter. Biomanipulation means removing fish from a water body.
