We are available for work on commercial properties, private lakes and ponds, golf courses, multi-unit residential properties, aquaculture facilities and more. Our services include the following:

  • Water quality management: AEC offers basic, advanced and long-term water quality monitoring for Maryland lakes and ponds. Using advanced diagnostic tools, we are able to give you an in-depth picture of the health of your lake or pond, and develop a strategy for managing factors including pH, phosphorus and chlorophyll levels, phytoplankton/zooplankton populations, dissolved oxygen profiles, trophic state indices and more.
  • Vegetation management and control: Maintaining a proper balance between fish populations and aquatic vegetation is essential to the health of your pond or lake. AEC is a leader in vegetation management for Maryland ponds. We use a number of methods, including mechanical, chemical, biological and physical vegetation control, to ensure both that the ecosystem of your pond is properly balanced, and that your pond remains an attractive place to swim, fish or otherwise enjoy.
  • Fish stocking and management: Ensuring a healthy fish population is an essential component of lake management in Maryland. AEC offers wholesale rates on species including largemouth bass, walleye, bluegill and more.
