LINNE Industries has recently supplied Delaware State University (DSU) with three PondHawk solar-powered pond aeration systems for its research project on water quality and aquatic weed control for golf course ponds.

“The research project was driven from our work with golf course superintendents,” says Sandra Burton, co-founder, LINNE Industries. “We are excited to partner with Delaware State University on this innovative study and look forward to providing superintendents, course owners and communities with meaningful data to make decisions on their water features.”

The PondHawk systems will be compared with two other pond management strategies in the nine-pond study funded by a grant from the Delaware Biotechnology Institute’s Center for Advanced Technology program. Throughout the next year experts at the DSU Aquaculture Research and Demonstration Facility will measure aeration’s impact on pH, nitrogen, phosphorus, algae and mosquitos while LINNE Industries assesses the energy and maintenance costs.

LINNE Industries and DSU will host a kick-off event from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 24. Golf course owners, managers, superintendents and anyone interested in pond management is invited to attend to learn more about the study and talk with the study principals.

“We have been interested in testing alternative energy sources at the Aquaculture Research and Demonstration Facility for a while now, and this project is allowing us to explore this technology,” says Dennis McIntosh, Ph.D., DSU’s principal project investigator.
