Environmental Problems

This lake had high levels in bacteriological, physical and chemical parameters due to external contributions, that prevented the realization of this type of events, without a previous adaptation work  and/or environmental remediation in coexistence with the animal and plant species present in the body of water.


By applying Biodeclean 5000 by spray and injection methods, the body of water was adapted to optimal levels well below the maximum limits accepted for human contact. In addition to contributing to the clarification of dissolved solids, algae control and improvement of parameters by environmentally friendly biological restoration processes.
