Lake Managers are directly involved in managing ponds, lakes, reservoirs and other bodies of water including their watersheds. Lake Managers make recommendations to governing groups and implement proper methods that affect the quality and use of these water bodies.
Water quality varies throughout the day, day-to-day, weekly and monthly (due to weather) and seasonally (due to climate), therefore, it’s extremely important to monitor lake health over time.
Submersed plant bio volume maps provide information about location, density, and the percent of the water column filled by plant material, which are imperative to targeting plant control resources in problem areas.
Maintaining adequate dissolved oxygen (DO) levels in water is a critical component to sustaining healthy ecosystems in lakes and ponds.
beneficial pond bacteria
We work with Naturalake Biosciences whose lab focuses on the development of three types of products: bacterial products natural to a lake or pond, biostimulants to stimulate a pond’s unique bacteria, and products to affect a plant and speed its degradation.
