The SOLitude Lake Management team won fourteen “Seeing is Believing” awards from SePRO Corporation, a developer and manufacturer of high quality, environmentally responsible solutions for aquatic plant management. These awards recognize the highest standard of excellence in water quality treatment for lakes, ponds, stormwater basins or other standing water bodies that have demonstrated the effectiveness of SePRO products in improving these aquatic ecosystems.

SOLitude Lake Management received these awards at the 2013 SePRO Preferred Applicator Seminar this past November at the SePRO Research & Technology Campus in Whitakers, North Carolina. Each award submission consisted of a case study highlighting a project with before and after photos and a detailed treatment summary for the water body including reason for treatment and chosen course of action, treatment and water body specifics, weather conditions, map of the water body or wetland and treatment area, water quality, end user satisfaction, and special circumstances.
