Aquatic Management Program

Man on Boat in a PondThe Lake Doctors, Inc. will visit any lake, pond, or other waterway to perform a detailed aquatic survey and determine any problems or potential issues. Then we will formulate a prescription that includes practical and economical solutions based upon the needs of our customers and the intended use of the pond or lake. Factors that The Lake Doctors, Inc. use when formulating a custom aquatic management program for your particular lake or pond include some of the following issues, which we will determine at the time of our aquatic survey.

These include: types of weeds and algae and their severity, any desirable or beneficial aquatic plants, the size and depth of the waterway, water clarity and color, water flow and source of water (springs, runoff, or impoundment), fish and wildlife present, any current aeration or fountains, water chemistry, oxygen levels, bottom composition (including muck levels), presence of debris or trash, and current (and intended) uses of the lake or pond. From these and other factors, we can suggest the best possible long-term program. In most cases, our programs for your lake or pond will include the following:

  1. A Minimum of 12 (Actual Number can Vary Depending upon Customer Needs & Geographical Locations) Water Inspections & Treatments as Necessary for Control & Prevention of Noxious Aquatic Weeds & Algae
