Northwood Lake – Santry

Fingal County Council have put in a large mat as seen in the picture here to try and prevent the growth of algae. The algae comes back in the warm weather and covers the lake. I have been working with the Council to try and come up with a way to reduce the growth. In addition an environmentally friendly chemical has also been sourced from the UK and this prevents the development of blanket weed when the first signs of an algal bloom is observed.
