Our Solutions

Bottom Barriers

Specially made sheets of materials such as fiberglass, polypropylene, or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), anchored to a lake bottom will prevent plant growth by blocking sunlight. Bottom barriers are most appropriate to control growth in localized areas such as in swimming areas, around docks or to create boat lanes out to deeper water.

Suitable for: small plots, private docks/swimming areas

Diver-Guided Suction Removal

Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) is the extraction of plants using a diver, suction tube, a unique set of pumps mounted on a boat and a bagging or filtration system. Suction harvesting is a viable means of plant suppression because the entire plant is removed in its connective rooting system.

 

Suitable for: small-medium plots

Herbicide Treatment

Specially made sheets of materials such as fiberglass, polypropylene, or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), anchored to a lake bottom will prevent plant growth by blocking sunlight. Bottom barriers are most appropriate to control growth in localized areas such as in swimming areas, around docks or to create boat lanes out to deeper water.

Suitable for: small-large plots
