Hydro-Management Plus’ all natural microbial consortia -
- Restores natural micro-ecosystems that encourage beneficial phytoplankton and zooplankton;
- Treats entire system down through the sediments and up through the water column;
- Helps support natural aquatic life and wildlife in the surrounding area and supports restoration of indigenous species;
- Provides full-scale water and watershed clean up;
- Reduces, eliminates and/or prevents algal blooms;
- Increases soil nutrients for maximum foliage and water plant health;
- Treats, reduces and/or eliminates underlying causes of recontamination at entry points;
- Reduces risks to human, animal and plant health in the water environment;
- Improves environmental quality of water and land systems.
Alpha tests pH, dissolved oxygen levels, carbon dioxide levels, temperature and redox at various water depths. We also determine the presence or absence of phytoplankton (microscopic plants), zooplankton (microscopic animals), shore plant, submerged plants and floating plants. These studies indicate the overall health of waterways. When problems are found, Alpha treats them with microbial mixes that clean and rebalance the waterway’s ecosystem to supports aquatic life and vegetation.
Shoreline soils that are barren from toxic contamination or industrial waste can also be restored using compost and a mixed consortium of microbes. The microbes become established in the compost and repopulate the soil. The microbes increase the soil’s ability to grow primary vegetation, halt further erosion, increase the area's aesthetic value and restore wildlife populations.(Country Club Report, Bio-Carb & Wetlands article)
Eutrophication Treatment & Prevention
The most obvious, persistent and pervasive water quality problem is that of “eutrophication.” Inland waters have deteriorated through excessive additions of pesticides, agricultural nutrients (N-P-K-S04), organic matter (sewage, TPH, BTEX, MTBE, greases and oils), and silt washed into the inland waters by erosion of soil from lumbering, farming and building developments.
All of the agricultural run-off, organic matter and silt have caused the deterioration of lakes and reservoirs by enhancing the over-growth of cyanochloranta (blue-green algae) and filamentous chlorophyta (green algae), increased rooted plant biomass, reduced water clarity, reduced available oxygen, and usually, reduced depth of the water itself.
These hypereutrophic bodies of water lose their recreational function and much of their beauty. The infestation of exotic plants and animals becomes so dense they reduce or eliminate natural species. The solution is to re-establish the natural (indigenous), balanced microbial ecosystem that outgrows unwanted organisms and cleans pollution rather than causing it.
With the assistance of Alpha Omega’s natural microbes in combination with phyto-remediation, two problems can be solved: (1) reduce existing toxic levels of pollutants and (2) increase low levels of proteins essential for photosynthesis to produce ATP, the indigenous microbes’ internal energy source.
Job sites that have been brought back to natural ecological balance include:
- Country Clubs – Connecticut & Maine
- Ponds and waterways in Ohio and Tennessee
- Residential areas in Ohio
Algae Reduction or Prevention of Algal Blooms
Red, Brown, Blue Green and Filamentous Algae Removal
Algae blooms are a major factor in the reclamation of most bodies of (fresh and salt) water in the United States. From as far north as Minnesota and extending to both coasts, fresh water ponds, lakes, streams and rivers are choked with algae blooms at certain times of the year, depending upon environmental and weather conditions. Instances of Red Tide, whether red, green, or brown are all a result of imbalance in the waterway’s ecosystems, each of which requires a special blend of microbes to provide permanent passive treatment of the problem. Alpha Omega has the technology in place to provide solutions to each of these problem areas. (Blue Green Algae report)

Water & Soil Ecological Restoration ("Terra-Forming")
- Inland waters have deteriorated through excessive additions of pesticides, agricultural nutrients (N-P-K-S04), organic matter (sewage, TPH, BTEX, MTBE and greases and oils), and silt washed into the inland waters by erosion of soil.
- Treating down through the sediment and up through the water column, along the banks with all natural microbial consortia reduces and/or eliminates potential return to hazardous conditions, encourages phytoplankton and zooplankton populations of beneficial insects, frogs, crayfish, fish and beneficial plant life and reduces risks to human, animal and plant health in a water environment.
