SOFT ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS TO WATER QUALITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL VALUE

Nature's solutions to water quality is plant uptake of phosphorus and nitrogen products that reduce these  concentrations  thus improving water quality, promote plant growth and  create ecological habitat for fish and other wildlife.

GILIO'S 37 YEARS OF SOFT ENGINEERING PROJECTS HAVE NEVER HAD OCCURRENCES OF HARMFUL ALGAL BLOOMS [HAB]

HAB's occur in natural and man-made water bodies from excess of phosphorus and nitrogen compounds. Sources are both natural and man-made. When concentrations of these compounds increase from either or both  man-made and natural  sources, then these excesses  may  result in  HAB blooms. HAB such as Microcystis aeruginosa cause both human and wildlife negative impacts.

AN EXAMPLE OF SUCCESSFUL SOFT ENGINEERING IN AN ESTABLISHED LARGE PROJECT

St. Lucie West, a 4,700 acre Development of Regional Impact [DRI] employed  my former firm Wetlands Management, Inc. [WMI] for a 10 year period. This DRI, a public 298 project, monitors the fertilizer level in their perimeter discharge lakes. Since  2011, this project has created water quality equal to the Total Maximum Daily Loads  [TMDL] concentration for phosphorus in  the nearby receiving St. Lucie River.

Gilio Environmental seeks to assist private and public entities with identifying surface water pollution causative  actions and recommend solutions. Gilio Environmental is unfunded except for out of pocket grant from START [start1.org] for some St. Lucie West water quality analysis. It seeks additional funding.
