Gottorf Castle moat
Problem: Sludge formation, algae growth, fish death
Unique pilot project for MELUND and the city of Schleswig
Creation of open water by desludging without dredging

The starting point
Think smart to save money: ecological water restoration
Anyone who looks after natural bodies of water will well know: By the time you notice symptoms of poor water quality – whether fish death, unpleasant odours or algae growth – the underlying problem is often well advanced. This was the case in the Burgsee lake and moat of Gottorf Castle near Schleswig. The increasing incidence of fish deaths led the town and the state of Schleswig-Holstein to commission an expert opinion to determine the causes. The result was alarming: The entire biological cycle of the nutrient-rich water had already been severely disrupted.
A holistic approach for balancing the unstable system with SchlixX Plus
In order to restore biological balance, it is necessary to use one solution to address all problem areas: Effective and gentle reduction of the sludge increases the open water volume and thus the amount of available space for fish. At the same time, the sludge reduction minimises the oxygen consumption by the sediment and additionally supplies the water with more oxygen. SchlixX Plus, which has just received the German Award for Sustainability Projects, has been created for precisely this purpose.
