What can I do to clear up my muddy pond?

To cure the muddy water problem, the source of the turbidity should be identified. 

Often, the problem is a combination of factors.  Muddiness is usually caused by soil type, wind and erosion, or animal activity.  Many treatment methods are only temporary measures, and will probably have to be repeated each year.  Additional information on muddy water is available here.
