As we all know Oklahoma is well known for tornadoes, rain, hail, lightning and various other weather conditions. Do these storms affect my pond, if so how? Storms can suddenly drop water temperatures and most importantly change the pH in a pond. So you ask, "What is pH and how do storm affect my Oklahoma Pond". Several things can happen with storms, here are a few listed below, but lets start with what pH is!
The pH level is a numeric value that indicates the relative acidity or alkalinity of the water on a scale of 0 to 14, with neutral at 7. Most Oklahoma lake and pond organisms prefer pH levels of 6.5 to 9. When storms are present, atmospheric pressure changes sometimes causing pH in your pond to change. This change in pH can be lethal to your fish.
