The application of aeration/circulation techniques to lakes are reviewed from a theoretical and practical viewpoint. The effect of destratification on algal production is related to the mixed depth with the use of a mathematical model. Procedures are given to determine air required to mix lakes of different sizes and shapes. It was found that approximately 30 scfm of air per 1,000,000 sq ft of lake surface area can be used. Hypolimnetic aeration systems that have been used are described in detail. Procedures for design are given.
