bioverse is one success story, as reported by the frederick news-post:
"Since the completion of the $10.2 million park nearly two years ago, city officials have struggled with algae buildup caused by the slow flowing water and the assorted putrit smells that accompany the green clumps of vegetation.
But now, during the time of year when needed most, a new program is showing promise, and in the coming expansion of the park, officials plan to install more features to improve creek flow.
The use of bio-balls has dramatically decreased the amount of algae appearing in the creek, said Roelkey Myers, Director of Parks and Recreation.
Eight of the softball-sized, plastic orbs have been placed in the creek between Bentz and East street. The balls slowly release enzymes that compete for the same nutrient the algae needs to grow.
Overall, Myers said, he has seen a 90 percent reduction in the prevalence of algae blooms in the creek."
