Give your parks the gift of sustainability.

From water quality testing, invasive species management and algae control to stormwater inspections, pond aeration and mosquito control, you really need a suite of solutions that provides you with balance and environmental sustainability.

SOLitude Lake Management has the Depth Of Expertise to provide those sustainable solutions you need.

Manage your stormwater ponds and BMPs properly & efficiently.

Your stormwater pond plays an integral role in your community, and you need to help it perform that role efficiently. Your stormwater facility is specially designed to manage flooding and reduce contaminants from rainwater.

Your community depends on the stormwater pond to function properly, especially when it rains, so you need to properly care for it. Become a proactive steward by:

    • Conducting annual stormwater inspections. This enables you to determine the current conditions and be sure that all components are functioning as designed. If not, regular inspections will help you identify issues and correct them before they become more severe and costly to remediate. 

    • Seeking bathymetric evaluation. Determining the depth of silt and where it's concentrated is important for the management of your stormwater pond. A heavy buildup of sediment will displace storage capacity and could minimize the effectiveness and functionality of this system. 

    • Performing the required routine maintenance. This helps you avoid the exorbitant costs of repairing a pond that's been neglected. With so many lakes and ponds, after a site is constructed, they are left to age with no thought of proper maintenance.

    • Planning for future repairs and maintenance such as dredging, dam repairs, and other expected significant costs, and accounting for the budgetary impacts they'll have.
"SOLitude Lake Management’s expertise, problem solving ability, and willingness to help have been invaluable. Kevin Tucker and his staff have been outstanding and I thoroughly enjoy working with them."

Operations Coordinator, Public Works/Building Maintenance, City of Virginia Beach, VA

If you don't currently have a plan in place – starting with stormwater inspections – it's tough to know where to begin. When systems that are integral to your community are not functioning as designed, you need to act quickly and intelligently. Better yet, get ahead of the curve and develop a proactive routine management program with the experts at SOLitude and you'll be on your way to establishing a well-maintained stormwater facility your community is proud of.

Integrate the art and science of lake and pond management.

municipality_pond_lake_2From high quality and sustainable management programs to ecologically balanced and aesthetically pleasing enhancements like pond fountains, your community deserves a natural environment that captivates the eye.

But, it’s not just about the beauty. Sound science and compliance with regulations is also necessary for a truly sustainable community lake or pond. Professional lake and pond management takes care of it all for you: from aeration, water quality testing and monitoring, nuisance algae and aquatic weed prevention and control, nutrient management, water quality restoration, fisheries management, compliance with federal/state/municipal regulations and even routine pond inspections and bathymetric studies that help you budget and allocate funds for potentially costly future expenses (i.e., structural repairs and dredging).
