Lake maintenance and weed control is done the environmentally friendly way.
Through our experience in managing hundreds of miles of Southwest Florida waterways, we encounter one very consistent factor: No body of water is exactly like another. Each is its own unique ecosystem. We understand this, and Mettauer’s licensed aquatic technicians take special care to treat each system accordingly. Traditional management practices treat symptoms of poor water quality and excessive organic biomass. These temporary treatments usually involve heavy metals and harsh chemicals. These outdated practices are the reason Mettauer Environmental is the area’s leading aquatic management company. Call us today for a free evaluation of your lake, pond, or stormwater system.
We know all the tricks. Nobody likes weeds — especially when you’re trying to go boating.
Aquatic weed management is important to consider when developing a lake management program.
When aquatic weeds are left to grow uncontrolled, they can interfere with fishing and other water sports, lower dissolved oxygen and water flow, harm fish and other wildlife and even disrupt boat traffic. Warm weather, imported weed species and high nutrient levels in most lakes, ponds, and waterways only add to the problem. We believe strongly in using the most environmentally friendly and responsible methods to accomplish this.
