Invasive Aquatic Species Control

Aquatic invasive species (AIS) are a major environmental threat to the health of our lakes, rivers and watersheds. Problems caused by invasive aquatic plants include

  • loss of recreation
  • severe oxygen depletion
  • stunted fish populations, fish kills
  • water-flow restrictions, flooding
  • navigation restrictions
  • accelerated sedimentation
  • habitat destruction
  • reduction in biodiversity
  • reduction in property values

We offer comprehensive services to control invasive aquatic plants, from detection and monitoring through management and control. Plans may included herbicide applications, harvesting, draw downs, or other suitable treatments based upon the lake’s situation. Protection of important native habitat is also a vital part of every plan.
