Pond remediation/recovery

Asked July 5, 2016, 9:12 AM EDT

I have a pond on my property that has farm runoff pass through it. It has undergone a severe bloom of duckweed that has covered the entire surface. Do you have suggestions for managing the duckweed? I would prefer not to use harsh chemicals since the pond has/had a vibrant ecosystem. Thanks
