Bioaugmentation Evaluation for Improving Water Quality of American Fork Harbor

Himanshu Ramesh Lamba [4] | Macaylah Mendenhall | Juan Carlos Verardo | Georgia Crockett

Abstract: Bioaugmentation technology was evaluated to improve the water quality of American Fork Harbor. The technology used for this study contains a novel consortium of metabolically cooperative microorganisms with endogenous and exogenous enzymes, and small molecule co-factors which support both biocatalytic and metabolic activity and are composed of all-natural materials and non-genetically modified. The study focused on improving the water quality of one of the harbors at Lake Utah over a period of 7 weeks. It was concluded that 7 weeks of Bioaugmentation showed measurable improvement in key water quality indicators. The data generated during this study indicates that Bioaugmentation Technology can help to improve the water quality at American Fork Harbor during summer months, leading to an increased microbial biodiversity in the water column.
