We have a duckweed problem in a 70 ft clarifier. The clarifier is extremely underloaded - 50,000 gpd in a 70 ft clarifier. The flow is from a college student development and the plant is a former textile industry WWTP. The duckweed grew when the clarifier was pumped down for maintenance and then took a long time to fill back up. Does anyone have any thoughts on the best way to get the duckweed out and also to prevent reoccurance? Also, any experiences using diquat?
