Achieve Functional Water In 3 Steps
We know it can be frustrating when the water you distribute isn’t healthy. Achieving clean, safe water is possible. With our aquatic management experts, you can reach your goals and enhance your water resources in three simple steps…
Sustainable Solutions for Irrigation Districts
The water quality of your irrigation resources plays a key role in the success and well-being of your community. The farmers and residents of your district are counting on you to provide them with safe, flowing irrigation water, so it is critical that reservoirs, lakes, and canals are properly maintained. We’re pleased to offer a number of aquatic management solutions such as:
Submersed aerators help enhance water quality in lakes and ponds by increasing dissolved oxygen levels. This natural tool is an excellent addition to any waterbody looking to maintain balanced water quality.
We offer installation, service, and warranty support for all of the top brands of lake and pond floating fountains. This solution helps increase dissolved oxygen levels in shallow waterbodies while enhancing aesthetics.
Water Quality Testing
An array of tests are conducted to check a waterbody's vitals and establish an initial baseline of health. Water quality data helps our aquatic experts determine which management tools to implement to help you achieve your goals.
Shoreline Erosion Management
We offer a variety of shoreline erosion control solutions that halt sedimentation and restore damaged banks. Enhance your community's shoreline with SOX Systems and create a safe space for all to enjoy.
Ready to catch some fish? We offer professional fish stocking, habitat management, fish feeder installation, electrofishing surveys, and other fisheries management strategies to help you build your dream fishery.
The hydro-rake clears accumulations of unconsolidated muck and debris (i.e. decaying leaves, peat, etc.) from lake and pond bottoms. This natural solution can also be used to control aquatic weed growth.
Algae & Aquatic Weed Control
Our lake and pond professionals utilize the most advanced products and practices for lake weed control and algae treatment solutions to help eliminate algae and nuisance aquatic weed growth.
Nutrient remediation is a natural management strategy utilized to reduce excess nutrient levels in lakes and ponds. Products like Phoslock, Alum, and EutroSORB can help limit water quality imbalances by managing excess nutrient levels.
Beneficial Buffer Management
Beneficial buffers add beauty to your lake or pond, prevent shoreline erosion, and help filter excess nutrients from entering the water. Establish your buffer with native vegetation to help maintain beautiful water.
Equipped with the very latest in GPS surface mapping, bathymetry, 3-D contour imaging, and aerial and fly-over video resources, we are able to analyze your waterbody below the surface with lake mapping technologies.
Increase the depth of your waterbody while removing sediment and muck buildup with dredging. With this solution, you can reset the lifespan of your lake or pond and implement proactive solutions for a healthier waterbody.
Adopt the Integrated Approach: Water Management Solutions that Work Better Together
Waterbodies are complex which means they often need attention from many angles. A holistic Annual Management Plan that incorporates beneficial buffer management and annual water quality testing can give you a healthy, beautiful waterbody. Neglecting to establish a buffer or an aeration system, for example, could leave your waterbody vulnerable to erosion, toxic algae blooms, and other water quality issues. Integrating customized lake and pond solutions will lead to a more balanced management program and give you peace of mind knowing your water resources are safe and clean year-round.
Couldn’t Be Happier with Alum Treatment
SOLitude did the first of three alum treatments on our lake. Excellent comes to mind when I think of all our interactions with SOLitude’s staff. SOLitude was very supportive throughout the complete process. They helped educate the board and district by sharing communication materials and presenting to our Lake District. They kept the board informed through the application process. I couldn’t be happier with SOLitude or the results of our alum treatment.
Kids Can Swim All Summer Long with Alum
The alum project on Bald Eagle has provided wonderful results. Previously, the smell and pea soup conditions in late July and August had us considering moving. Now we can see the lake bottom at the end of our dock and our granddaughters love swimming in the lake all Summer long. Thanks!
First-Class Alum Applications
This is a very reputable company. You can see they are first-class, not only in their staging area but the way they do the application.
These Alum Treatments Work
The target was to get a 50 percent reduction. We got a 56 percent reduction, which was absolutely exciting. The proof is in the pudding [that these treatments worked] is the park has stayed open all summer.
Never Seen the Lake This Clear
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the lake this clear. I can see the bottom all around my dock as if I were on a lake in northern Minnesota!
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.
Improved Water Quality Significantly
Shannon and Hunter are very professional and take a personal interest in taking the best care of our pond and more importantly, our pet koi fish. They have improved the water quality significantly and we are very pleased with their customer service.
Our Lake Is the Best It’s Been In Years
Our large lake association had SOLitude install a full lake aeration system and perform an alum application. Our lake is the best it has been in several years.
Improve Our Water Quality
SOLitude Lake Management visited our Miami Lakes Community to obtain water samples as part of the Town of Miami Lakes lake water improvement initiative. The staff was highly professional, explained all details of lake water maintenance, and took the time to provide remedies for non-oxygenated waters. Highly recommend.
Responsive & Resolved Our Issues
SOLitude has managed our community’s 24 lakes for many years and we are very satisfied with their performance. One of our lakes has been experiencing regular algae blooms and SOLitude’s biologist, Christina, performed a comprehensive lake and water analysis to determine the cause of the problem. Recommendations were presented and the problem was resolved. The SOLitude technician, Maxwell, is in control of managing our littoral plants and is very responsive to resolving identified issues.
Improve Your Lake’s Water Quality with SOLitude
I have worked with SOLitude for many years at our HOA with our lakes committee. Our biologist, Christina, has been such an asset to our community from the installation of lake aeration to nutrient mitigation and her positive attitude and professionalism. The entire company is one that I would certainly recommend to any community seeking to improve their lake’s water quality.
Recommendations Are Thoughtful & Achievable
Erin and the rest of the SOLitude crew do a fantastic job monitoring water quality and algae growth. Erin used environmentally friendly products to control both the algae and maintain water quality with great success. Site visits are as promised and reports are clear and concise and recommendations are always thoughtful and achievable. We appreciate the effort by Erin and the other SOLitude staff that support our effort.
Healthy Water Quality & Fish
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.
The Water Is Crystal Clear
The water quality and clarity has been great! Our waterfall and fountain feature is located at the entrance of the community. We are mandated to use reclaimed water. The water is crystal clear.
Got Ponds Back Into Shape
We have 5 water features on the property and before SOLitude Lake Management came, our ponds were full of algae and aquatic weeds, looking very unhealthy. In the past 7 years, SOLitude has cleaned out our ponds and got them back into shape making them look like amazing water features as they should be.
My “Go-To” Firm!
SOLitude Lake Management has been and will continue to be my “go-to” firm… The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to always go that extra mile. Their responsiveness to questions, concerns, or work orders is fantastic. They have taken the time to educate me and have worked to find cost-effective solutions that are sometimes outside of the box. Keep up the great work!
