I know this forum is more about decorative ponds, not farm ponds but I am looking for some advice. For the first time in thirteen years I have a surface algae problem. I know that it must be a result of too many nutrients and /or too much sun. But I can't figure out what has changed? There is no more agricultural run off into it than any prior year. We have had extraordinarily hot weather for this time of year. And a lot of rain. I know there is a snapping turtle living there but that's not a huge addition to the created waste. I also have two geese and a duck on that pond, but have always had more geese and ducks than now. Any good ideas on how to create movement without electricity? Maybe a wind powered deal?
