Plant Surveys

Plant SamplingAquatic plant surveys are becoming an increasingly important tool to highlight changes in an aquatic plant community including exotic species introduction.  They are usually required every five years for lakes with a management plan.  Survey points are imported to portable GPS units to ensure the same points are sampled year after year.  Sampling includes recording plant species present, densities, depth, and sediment type.  Lake and Pond Solutions Co. has staff who are DNR trained in Aquatic Plant Identification and Survey Methods.  We are also equipped to handle Aquatic Plant Management (APM) Plan updates for lake associations and districts.
