- Vegetation management: The health of your lake or pond is determined by the vegetation it supports. For many, however, a lake is also a place to swim, fish, and relax — managing a lake that’s conducive to these activities is also a concern. AEC can help you maintain an appropriate balance between a properly-functioning ecosystem and a property that is aesthetically pleasing. Working with you, we can develop strategies for eliminating excess or harmful vegetation, or promoting the growth of beneficial species.
- Water quality testing: AEC offers basic and advanced levels of water quality monitoring for Iowa lakes. Using sophisticated diagnostic tools, we can check factors from pH and alkalinity to phyto-plankton and total phosphorous levels. During your initial consultation, our experts will recommend a testing program that’s right for you.
- Long-term monitoring: Long-term monitoring of water quality factors is essential to spotting trends and taking corrective action to preserve the health of your lake. Ignoring a growing problem can cause more costly or drastic solutions than those that would have been required earlier — however, through proactive monitoring, you can identify issues faster to save money and time.
- Fish stocking and management: If you’re stocking a large pond or lake, let AEC help you choose the best species of fish for your property. We can supply and manage bluegill, bass, walleye and other freshwater species — contact our team directly for more information.
