Lakes & Ponds Technical Assistance

The District offers technical assistance to landowners who are interested in learning more about the health of their pond or lake. This service is at no cost and provides information about the current condition of the waterbody.

During the visit, our water resource specialist will provide:

  • A description of the site
  • List of current aquatic vegetation including invasive plants as seen in the video on the right →
  • Test the waterbody for dissolved oxygen, temperature and conductivity
  • Recommendations for improved water quality, fish habitat, and more!
