Problems Associated With Uncontrolled Weeds & Algae

aquatic weed removalWhen it comes to your lakes and ponds, it is important to always stay proactive in your efforts to keep aquatic weeds and algae maintained. When weeds and algae become uncontrolled and consume your water sources, there are many harmful consequences. Below we list the many problems associated with uncontrolled water weeds and algae.

  • Ensure your water is clear of algae and weeds to help your guests enjoy their time on your lakes and ponds. When too many weeds accumulate, this can cause issues with fishing and watersports, such as wave runners, boating, and skiing.
  • Too many weeds and algae lower oxygen levels in the water which is harmful to fish and other aquatic wildlife.
  • The natural flow of water can be interrupted if weeds and algae become uncontrollable, causing harm to boaters and wildlife.
  • When waterways become overcome with unsightly algae, boating traffic can be hindered. Boaters will have to take alternate routes in lakes to avoid the weeds and could cause dangerous driving efforts.
