Abstract

To reduce the negative effects of eutrophication processes in water bodies it is necessary to improve water quality by ensuring the necessary oxygen concentration. The paper proposes a new innovative solution for the improvement of lake water quality. The premises for the implementation of the experimental floating platform which will aerate the lake waters will be presented. To give a specific view over the oxygen dispersion into the lake, numerical simulations in CFD software will be presented in different cases.

The protection of drinking water resources against pollution is a common task of outstanding importance for the water management and environment protection sectors. To prevent water supply problems arising from the short and medium-term quality deterioration of resources caused by pollution incidents, it is vital to develop methods for monitoring the quality of resources as well as methods for monitoring and predicting serious pollution events to protect water users. In the case of vulnerable drinking water resources, the establishment and maintenance of an early warning monitoring system is important. Emergency treatment technologies are also needed by the waterworks to treat the water for periods when the quality of the water has temporarily deteriorated.

Innovative solutions for the improvement of water quality consist in using a floating platform equipped with aeration systems. The equipment used to aerate the lake waters is powered by the area renewable energy (solar, wind). So, this platform can be used in isolated area, where there is no energy supply from the national network.
