Multiple aquatics industry professionals from SOLitude Lake Management, an industry leader in lake, pond and wetland management, fisheries management and related environmental services for the United States, were recently awarded for their accomplishments in the sustainable management of public and private aquatic resources. SePRO Corporation, a developer and manufacturer of high quality, environmentally responsible solutions for aquatic plant management announced the news during their annual conference in August.
Five SOLitude team members received SePRO’s “Seeing Is Believing” award, which recognizes the highest standard of excellence in water quality management for lakes, ponds, stormwater retention ponds or other waterbodies that have demonstrated the effectiveness of SePRO products. Award submissions consisted of a case study documenting a technical program for nuisance aquatic weed and algae control, a detailed treatment summary for the waterbody, project results, before and after photos, and client satisfaction reports.
“We’re pleased to once again recognize several SOLitude Lake Management team members for sharing their water resource restoration case studies,” said Shaun Hyde, Regional Sales Manager for SePRO Corporation. “We appreciate SOLitude’s commitment to the sustainable management of our precious aquatic resources and being dedicated Stewards of Water.”
Over time, SOLitude team members have received a total of 50 distinctions from SePRO Corporation. In addition to 45 Seeing Is Believing awards, four of SOLitude’s leading professionals have received SePRO’s National Applicator of the Year. SOLitude was also selected for SePRO’s Sustainable Leadership award, which recognizes one company, each year, whose programs and management solutions show evidence of results and leadership in the protection and restoration of aquatic ecosystems.
