    Not an option when there are 3-4 fertilizer "injections" a year. (of the brown cow liquid type)

    They use them alot around here for raising commercial catfish.Google Aquaculture Aerators for tons of resources and sales.

    I've built a few municipal waste ponds which had aerators which where basically floating windmills driving a prop. I always thought they were a good idea. Of course the jobs were in areas with perpetual wind.

    Solar powered is the next obvious step. A friend of mine started in landfill gas reclaim has transferred to solar engineering. GC Solar, I have no doubts he could set up a system to run aeration on solar.

Between my unpaid/unofficial groundskeeper position, a real job bidding/installing liners all across the USA, training and pups, I'm a busy guy.
    Do whatever you can to link the work to ag use, it will give you much more leway when trying to get permits. As much as W WA counties like to stop you from doing anything, their hands are tied when it comes to existing ag uses.

    Reed Canary Grass eradication is a start, increase in planted waterfowl habitat(corn left up) reducing noxious waterborne weeds for protection of steelhead, grading to allow mowing/spraying for napweed(just showed up and is a focus) clearing grading for farmability... just a start. Due to the re-structuring of the Snoqualmie alignment/upstream flood reduction, the feds have a bigger part in what happens below the new powerplant for properties in the floodplain and designated "wetlands". The process is a complete four letter word with an ING mess. The property carried a clearing and grading permit for almost 20 years and it was let go. Now, it might take review from up to four different agencies just to slope a ditch which was made under the prior permit and connects three ponds.
