The Aquatic Environments Journey: A History of Lake and Pond Management Excellence

Since our founding in 1998, Aquatics Environments Inc. (AEI) has grown to be the leader in aquatic management in the western United States. That growth is a testament to our continued focus on providing clients with the best value and quality in aquatic management through superior service and expertise.

At AEI we have always strived for excellence. In April, we transitioned ownership to SOLitude Lake Management—a decision that allowed us to broaden our technical expertise, expand our service offerings, and increase our training and development efforts. To better define what we stand for and the journey we share with our clients, we have now adopted a new name for our company, one that reflects the principles that define us in the markets we serve. We are proud to introduce you to SOLitude Lake Management.

The staff of SOLitude Lake Management identified the weed and treated the pond promptly with much success.

We’ve been working with SOLitude Lake Management since 2009 when an aggressive aquatic weed was becoming a problem and taking over our pond. The staff of SOLitude Lake Management identified the weed and treated the pond promptly with much success. Since that time, our ponds have been monitored monthly by their competent staff and precautions have been taken so that the pond weeds do not get out of control. We are pleased with the quality of service and their effort to work with us towards an organic approach to keeping our ponds healthy

SOLitude has taken a huge burden off of my shoulders and now I don’t even have to worry about the appearance of our pond

We used to struggle with many different issues on holes 15,16,17 at our Country Club. It was not uncommon for us to see algae blooms appear out of nowhere along one of the most important focal points of the course. Since SOLitude Lake Management has been taking care of the pond for us, we have had very little issues with the aesthetic qualities of our pond. SOLitude has taken a huge burden off of my shoulders and now I don’t even have to worry about the appearance of our pond

SOLitude came in and guided us through the entire process.

We were presented with the challenge of dealing with our stormwater basin, which is regulated by EPA standards that we were not familiar with. SŌLitude came in and guided us through the entire process. Our basin went from an eyesore to a spectacular main selling point for our community. We are in good hands with SŌLitude and cannot thank them enough!

Working with the team from SOLitude Lake Management took away the pressure of dealing with an issue that I had never specialized in

Working with the team from SOLitude Lake Management took away the pressure of dealing with an issue that I had never specialized in. The knowledge of everyone involved helped keep the process moving, from engineering to local code compliance. They knew the course that needed to be taken and it was implemented in a timely manner, causing the project to come to completion well within our expectations

Immediate Communication and Actionable Timelines

SOLitude Lake Management has consistently performed to a high standard within the three communities they currently service for my clients. Whether it is routine maintenance or a major issue, I can always be assured that when I call or email we will have almost immediate communication and actionable timelines. I am particularly impressed with Brent Weber, the Environmental Scientist that is routinely assigned to my properties. He consistently keeps me informed and up-to-date on the status of new issues and general or routine upkeep. In a busy industry such as this one, having someone that stays in touch is critical and appreciated. Hat’s off to Brent and to SOLitude for a job well done!

Reliable and Quick to Respond

“SOLitude Lake Management has been managing our lake/stormwater pond, and fountains since 2005. Kevin Tucker and his team have always been reliable and quick to respond to any issues. They are all very knowledgeable, able to explain what is happening with any situation, and find solutions to problem as they arise. Overall, I have been very pleased with their work and would highly recommend them to anyone with lake, pond, and other BMP management needs.”

Thank You from Camp Holiday Trails

Thank you for coordinating the restoration effort for our pond and donating labor for the aerator installation and watermeal treatment. This will ensure that hundreds of kids with special medical needs, and those who have the honor, joy and inspiration of working with them, will benefit from the Camp Holiday Trails experience this year!

Many thanks to SOLitude for always doing such a great job in Crofton Meadows!

I had two phone calls today from homeowners telling me how beautiful the pond is and that they love the festive lights. Many thanks to SOLitude for always doing such a great job in Crofton Meadows!

We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years

Our Club was more interested in a mechanical removal approach to our weed problem versus a broad spectrum chemical treatment. Jeff Castellani and his team developed a plan that was well suited for our environmentally sensitive location. The mechanical hydro raking service that SOLitude provided was the perfect solution and worked very well in our shallow irrigation pond… We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years.

The service we received was top notch

When one of our stormwater BMPs was overtaken by phragmites, we called SOLitude for treatment. From the bidding process to the follow-up, the service we received was top notch. A year later, the Phragmites has still not returned. Considering how invasive this species is, this is quite an accomplishment!
