Problem: Federal regulatory compliance needed to insure wildlife and birds are excluded from accidental exposure to the solutions in these ponds.
Solution: Proposed a complete cable grid support and netting system to provide full proof barrier to wildlife and bird entry.
Result: Exclosures installed completely solved the problem and met the regulatory compliance needed to retire the concern.
