A Wide Variety of Pond and Lake Management Services

AEC provides a wide assortment of services ranging from large lake to small pond management solutions. Our comprehensive list of services includes:

  • Vegetation Management: Maintaining healthy levels of plants and algae is an important component of lake and pond management. AEC can provide mechanical, biological, physical and material interventions that take care of weeds and algae blooms, and promote the overall health and balance of your lake.
  • Fish Stocking: We offer wholesale prices on a range of sport and feeder fish suited to different sizes of lake and pond. Let our lake management experts help you choose the best combination of bass, walleye, bluegill or other species for your property.
  • Lake Monitoring: Ongoing monitoring of water quality over time can greatly simplify pond and lake management. Knowing baseline values of pH and other indicators is important to anticipating when maintenance is required.
  • Bathymetric Mapping: Bathymetric mapping uses GPS and acoustic sounding technology to measure the depths and contours of your lake or pond. This can be useful for dredging applications and when performing interventions to combat algae or other nuisance plant growth.
  • Diffuser Systems: Diffuser systems add oxygen to your lake or pond, which is important for managing invasive plant growth and ensuring the health of fish stocks. AEC offers several diffusor systems and can match you with the right product for your lake or pond.
  • Fish Management: Even a small lake or pond is a complex ecosystem that requires ongoing management to stay in balance. AEC can measure the state of your fish stocks and design a management program that keeps them healthy on an ongoing basis.
  • Otterbine® Fountains: Otterbine® fountains not only make an attractive addition to any body of water, but they also help maintain proper aeration — an important part of lake and pond management.
  • AquaMaster® Fountains: AEC is also an authorized AquaMaster® fountain distributor. Contact our office today for more information!
