The natural beauty of lakes and ponds is a captivating feature in any landscape. Healthy lakes and ponds are not only beautiful, but they provide habitat and drinking water for a marvelous variety of plants and animals and are also important for recreational uses such as fishing, swimming, and boating.
Unfortunately, there are many threats to the health and beauty of ponds. Exotic plant species such as Eurasian watermilfoil have entered midwest lakes, causing aesthetic and water quality problems. Natural aging of a pond can lead to excessive plant growth which can damage the health and beauty of a pond. Many factors can interact to reduce oxygen to unhealthy levels.
Human activities are a major threat to lakes and ponds. Soil erosion from any exposed land will make a pond more shallow, and can eventually fill in the pond. Shallow ponds are susceptible to excessive plant growth, and may be unable to support fish. Runoff of excess fertilizer from farming and landscaping can also cause excessive plant growth.
Managing the health and beauty of your lake or pond requires constant attention focused on preventative strategies rather than reaction to problems. Effective pond management is similar to raising children. While there are characteristics common to all children, each child is an individual. All ponds also have common characteristics; however, each pond is unique. Therefore, managing ponds and the threats to them requires extensive knowledge and experience.
AQUA DOC has been sustaining and renewing the health and beauty of ponds since 1983. This experience is not only valuable in managing current threats to your pond, but is also critical in anticipating future threats. Working with you, AQUA DOC can develop a management program to enhance the health and beauty of your pond.
