Rehabilitating ponds

I am working for SRSA as a WASH technical advisor assisting Save the Children and UNICEF with treatment plants and rehabilitation of ponds

A lot of agencies are adding lime to rehabilitated ponds but nobody can give a scientific explanation of the benefits of it. I have been around in Labutta and Bogale Townships and discussed it with all stakeholders doing WASH. There are some that adds because villagers wants them to, there are other that don't. We are many watsans that do not see the point in adding lime, as the only obtainable result is an increase of the pH. Do you know if there are other benefits? Thank you very much!

Regards,

Rolando
