What is the odor coming from the pond?
Rotting organic matter, water turnover, or certain types of algae are typically the main sources of bad odor. Organic matter decays at the bottom of the pond when it is stagnant and poorly oxygenated and sulfur-dioxide is released as a by-product of the decomposition. When the water is disturbed by way of cool wind or heavy rainstorms, the odor comes to surface.
