A Wide Variety of Pond and Lake Management Services

AEC provides a wide assortment of services for clients with water bodies ranging from large lakes to small ponds. 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 or herbicidal options to control weeds and algae while promoting the overall health and balance of your lake.
  • Fish Stocking: We offer wholesale prices on a range of sport and feeder fish for any size water body. 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 parameters allows us to track any changes over time that may have a negative impact on water quality.
  • 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 when combating algae or other nuisance plant growth and for dredging applications.
  • Diffuser Systems: Diffuser systems will destratify your lake or pond and maintain uniform temperatures and oxygen levels, which is important for managing invasive plant growth and ensuring a healthy fish population. AEC offers several diffuser systems and can match you with the right product.
  • Fish Management: Even a small lake or pond is a complex ecosystem that requires ongoing management to stay in balance. AEC can assess the balance of your fish population and design a management program to keep them healthy.
  • 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!

Every lake and pond management service we offer is backed by our commitment to quality and meeting the needs of our clients, an AEC hallmark since 1987.
