Mechanical & Shoreline Restoration
Every waterbody - from golf course irrigation ponds to drinking water reservoirs - experiences erosion and muck build-up, which causes a loss of depth over time. Mechanical solutions are used to remove muck and weeds and restore volume, and shoreline management can stabilize sediment for years to come.

Professional laboratory testing allows our experts to fully understand problems and design comprehensive, tailored management programs.

Nothing But Compliments for SOLitude
SOLitude has been managing our lake for the past two years. Through their efforts, the lake’s water quality has improved tremendously. Even with one of the hottest and dryest seasons, I received nothing but compliments on the water clarity, as well as positive feedback from fishermen about the abundance of healthy fish.

SOLitude has the manpower to handle all jobs, large or small, and the expertise to answer any questions. They care about their clients, which is easy to see when observing the quality of work provided by them during every visit. SOLitude is the team of highly trained professionals you want to maintain the waterbodies on your property.
My Pond Is Finally Nice to Look At
This company is amazing! I called and explained the issues I was having with my pond, and Josh came out and assessed my pond. After doing so, he was able to put together a regiment that helped bring my pond back to where it is nice to look at! I would recommend this company to all of my friends and family!
Created An Oasis All Can Enjoy
Our community has a one-acre pond that SOLitude has managed for our 200 homes development. They have done a fine job in maintaining the health of the pond so that people can fish and enjoy the surrounding area, wildlife, and gardens. It is a true oasis in a declining area of green spaces for all to enjoy.
SOLitude Came to Our Rescue
When SOLitude came to our rescue, our pond was covered in water lettuce. As each month went by, the pond became clearer and clearer until now it is completely clear and I am completely grateful that the beautiful, clear pond that was there when we moved in 36 years ago, is once more. Thanks to Mike and everyone at SOLitude who made this possible!
Pleasure to Work With
For the past 2 years as a member of our neighborhood board, I worked personally with Mitchell of SOLitude Lake Management. Our neighborhood has over 40 lakes & ponds. I can honestly say it was a pleasure to work with this vendor. Mitchell provided weekly updates and as our aquatics expert, he helped educate us and assisted in developing a restorative approach to our lake & pond management. It was a pleasure to work with such a knowledgeable representative. Thanks!
Highly Recommend SOLitude
SOLitude services all the water, weed, and algae requirements for our Condominium Lake which 7 buildings back up to. Our Aquatic Specialist Ean does a fabulous job taking care of all our needs and has many owners complimenting on how great our water looks. Ean is just a phone call away and shows up immediately. He is always friendly and very knowledgeable and takes care of the issues. I would highly recommend this company to anyone for your lake water needs.
From Swamp to Beautiful Water
For about 30 years I watched the encroachment of weeds across my pond, limiting not only our recreational use but our aesthetic appreciation as well. SOLitude Lake Management came in with their hydro-raking harvester and clear it all out! It was the first time I could swim across the entire pond! No swamp, just beautiful water that passers-by slow down to look at.
Go-To for All My Lake Needs
The SOLitude team is my go-to for all my lake needs. Very professional and responsive. I know I will always be taken care of even when it is something extremely difficult. Their years of experience make them the best lake company in the valley. Highly recommended. Thanks team!
