Local, State and Federal Water Managers and Officials
Your responsibility is to ensure a clean viable water supply. A difficult task to say the least.
The public wants:
- Observable results
- Measurable results
- Lower budgets
Bio-Zyme can help you answer these demands by providing a cost effective, safe proven system to clean water. Bio-Zyme is currently being used in over 60,0000 acres of water assets. TRM-Biologics has documented results of Bio-Zyme in large and small lakes to improve water quality.

Everybody Wants Clean Water
But At What Price?
Unhealthy lakes are fueled by excessive phosphorus and nitrogen. As the population increase so does the nutrient problem. We can’t limit population growth but we can reduce these nutrient levels with Bio-Zyme. Bio-Zyme provides an environmentally safe economical, and efficient method to restore and maintain a health nutrient balance in lakes.
Your public wants to see results. They want to see evidence of healthy lakes.
You need measureable results to know you’re meeting government standards to ensure healthy lakes.
The public wants responcible officials to manage spending wisely to get max benefit from tax dollars.
Jim Burney, Aquatic Vegetation Controls Inc’s CEO, discuss the major clean water issues and the role of Bio-Zyme bacterial augmentation plays in solving the issues.
About Healthy Water
“WATER IS A CONNECTED SYSTEM”
Water from rainfall drains from the surrounding land into ponds and lakes, then flows into rivers, finding its way to estuaries and eventually to the ocean. All along this journey water picks up nutrients and accumulates them to create un-healthy water assets.
Excess phosphorous and nitrogen (nutrients) are a significant part of the problem. These nutrient overloads throws each part of the system out of balance causing environmental problems.
Bio‑Zyme corrects this system overload and brings lakes into a healthy state.
Role Of Government STA's
A great deal time, money and political capital have been spent in developing a series of storm water treatment areas to do the work of removing excessive nutrients to create healthy bodies of water that flow to other lakes and streams downline.
STA’s are justified, needed and effective, but STAs have limitations which Bio-Zyme is specifically designed to address:
STA’s are expensive to acquire, build and maintain.
1. Bio-Zyme does a superb job maintaining healthy STA’s.
2. Bio-Zyme can lower the costs associated with needed on-going maintenance.
As water flows through an STA, plants remove nutrients to clean water to acceptable levels.
To be effective STAs water must flow from one STA to another. STA’s are shallow, only a few feet deep. Over time organic sediment build-up reduces the depth of the STA and reduces the flow through the STA. Bio-Zyme naturally reduces sediment build up and facilitates water flow.
To maintain the STAs viability to clean water the STA must be maintained by removing the organic sediment. Mechanical muck reduction (dredging) can be used remove the muck and reestablish water flow.
Mechanical muck reduction is monstrously expensive, takes the STA off line and is harsh environmentally. Bio-Zyme eliminates the need for mechanical reduction.
STA's are big and expensive to maintain
Muck build-up restricts water flow
Expensive mechanical muck reduction
Having cleaned thousands of lakes over a 20 year period, Bio‑Zyme is well established as a proven leader. We help government agencies and professional applicators achieve clean water quality, reduce muck (floating muck and bottom muck), and restore a healthy balance to aquatic life.
Case Study: Bio-Zyme Impact on South Florida Water Management STA 1WBio-Zyme Treatment in a 900 Acre Stormwater Treatment Area Cell
- Reduce the heavy muck
- Break up the floating tussocks
- Improve the physical characteristics of the STA
The ultimate objective was to remove phosphorus.
The problem was that tussocks and muck reduced the flow and inhibited the STA’s effectiveness. Needed a healthy environment for emergent plants to grow and take up nutrients.
BioZyme Application using a 500 gallon Bio-Generator and distributed the incubated product in the treatment over 6 months. Total area impacted by the treatment approximated 350 acres. The entire 900 acre STA was affected with all the tussocks were controlled. along with significant muck reduction.
WATER CLARITY IMPROVED
Significant visible improvement in water clarity.
MUCK LEVELS REDUCED
Bottoms became firm with significant muck reduction.
Most of the treatment benefits were still visable after two years
Using Bio-Zyme Bacterial Augmentation in the City of Pt St. Lucie, Florida Storm STA‘
Studies the use of of Bio-Zyme bacterial augmentation on a 10 acre STA and a 100 acre STA.
250 gallon Bio-Generator was used on each lake.
Healthy Improvements –
The bigger lake was closed because Microcystis levels posed danger to resisdents and animals. The park was later re-opened after Bio-zyme treatment.
Noticeable Improvements –
Water clarity was greatly improved. Also we se an abundance in species of birds. Fishing is superb as witnessed by the amount of fish eating birds.
Phosphorus & Muck Reduction –
Measurable drops in phosphorus by a facotor of 3x. Muck reductions at 5x levels.
