Mechanical Harvesting and Hydro-Raking Management

SOLitude Lake Management offers hydro-raking and mechanical harvesting to provide area selective removal of nuisance, floating and rooted aquatic vegetation and accumulated sediment. Eliminating undesirable plants and sediment in your waterbody can improve water quality, reduce odor and enhance recreational use. These environmentally-friendly management options also allow for an alternative solution in situations where herbicides are not appropriate or desired.
