Niakwa’s ponds are an important irrigation feature for our golf course. Water entering and leaving the property is tested twice annually and we are grateful to have partnered with the Manitoba Metis Federation and EMFluids inc. in trialling a water treatment tool in our ponds.

The two-year trial involved water testing before and after use of the EMFluids technology in our ponds. Ten water quality metrics were measured as well as sediment analysis. We experienced significant overall improvement in water quality including a 60% and 70% reduction in total phosphorous in each pond and a 42% and 49% reduction in ammonium in each pond. This type of technology will be an important consideration in preserving the integrity Niakwa’s water system.
