Once the pond aerator has been installed or immersed below the surface of the water, both beauty and life is restored to the pond. Note that such aesthetic and esthetic ideals attached to pond aerators and fountains apply in equal measure to other public and private areas, amongst which include public use manmade or natural lakes, cleaned riverbeds, and both public and private dams or reservoirs.
Let’s reel the camera back a bit. Cleaned riverbeds? Not a chance. It was heavily polluted in the beginning. This critical situation, let it be said, now also applies in equal measure to larger ponds, lakes (both natural and manmade), dams and reservoirs. Due to mostly inappropriate and wholly unsuitable overuse and certainly much abuse and neglect, such water resources become nothing more than smelly sewers, if not worse.
Because the water became highly toxic, all existing life died a cruel death. A thick, pungent film of algae developed on the surface of the water. No nether life could come up for air. And no airborne life could penetrate the surface of the water during its natural and instinctive search for food. But if it could, it too became infected and died a cruel death. One good example on the global scale could be provided to emphasize this dastardly horror.
When oil tanker spills occurred off the coast or deep at sea, entire eco-systems were devastated. In some oceanic and coastline areas of the world, no life has been restored, even after so many years. This manmade disaster could be compared to a nuclear fallout disaster. Thankfully, the wakeup call has been adhered to, even if it is perceived to be in dribs and drabs. Because really, every precious drop counts. Life is being restored, slowly but surely.
