LAKE MANAGEMENT SERVICE
Often ponds are over-crowded with shore vegetation, algae, submersed or floating vegetation. Vegetation can inhibit fishing, fish spawning grounds and habitat, and can contribute to the general unhealthy appearance of a pond. Careful plant identification and a treatment plan are paramount in aquatic vegetation control. Hurried or unplanned use of herbicide can flip a pond by depleting the pond’s oxygen all at once. Large amounts of dead plants create too much demand on the pond’s oxygen supply as they decompose, resulting in a fish kill. Unsupervised herbicide use can be illegal and heavy fines may result.
