Lake and Pond Management


National Pond Service uses scientific sampling techniques to assess your lake or pond and manage it properly.  We will survey your pond with a variety of measurements to create the best management plan to fit your needs. 

Over time lakes and ponds slowly begin to fill in with organic matter.  Some of that organic matter is produced from within the pond by decaying algae, expired water plants and fish. 

Other organic matter from terrestrial sources can be transported and deposited through surface runoff, wind action and pond visitors.  As this organic matter begins to breakdown and decay, nutrients are released into the water.  An abundance of nutrients can lead to major water quality problems.


Our aquatic management programs are designed to increase your enjoyment of having a pond. We will propose how to reduce the accumulation of organic bottom sediments and excess nutrients in the water column without the use of chemicals.

We will provide you with the sampling and monitoring results to help make environmentally sound decisions.  Let National Pond Service take care of your lake management and pond maintenance.
