The City of Newark installs the PondHawk solar-powered pond aeration system as part of its commitment to improving water quality. The PondHawk installation illustrates Newark's continued commitment to utilizing subsurface aeration instead of chemicals to control algae growth.
PondHawk by Newark manufacturer LINNE Industries, provides year-round pond circulation and aeration using solar power.
City of Newark confirmed today that it has installed PondHawk solar-powered pond aeration systems at the stormwater pond in the White Chapel community.
“Our goal is to release higher quality water downstream when compared to stormwater flows into the pond”, said Kelley Dinsmore, Environmental Coordinator at the City of Newark. “PondHawk will help us do this by adding oxygen, increasing circulation, promoting organic decomposition, and reducing algae. In addition, an educational sign has been installed at the site illustrating how the technology works and its benefits for water quality.”
PondHawk (patented) is the first fully-integrated, solar-powered pond aeration system that delivers algae eliminating bubbles to any pond anywhere without the expense of power delivery costs, electricity and peak demand charges. PondHawk's unique stealth design does not obstruct the beauty of the property or negatively impact wildlife. Additionally, PondHawk is nearly silent—another important attribute for residential usage. PondHawk has been used to naturally improve the health of ponds on golf courses all over the country and is now beginning to find a market in more residential settings.
“We’re really honored to have PondHawk tending the pond at White Chapel.” said Sandra Burton, President and Co-Founder of LINNE Industries. “LINNE Industries applauds the City’s leadership in maintaining water quality with the use of PondHawk. Especially when you consider the City of Newark's extensive experience using industrial subsurface aeration at the Reservoir, we're delighted they choose to implement our solar technology to improve the water quality in the White Chapel stormwater basin.”
