Keep Your Lake Looking Beautiful & Healthy With Our Sanford Lake Management Services
A properly designed retention pond or stormwater retention area with a narrow fringe of aquatic plants will seldom cause problems. In fact, desirable vegetation growing in and around a retention pond can help to reduce bank erosion and capture harmful pollutants that might otherwise contaminate our waterways. However, a shallow pond with excessive gradual sloping can easily suffer an overgrowth of unsightly vegetation. Our Sanford pond cleaning services help residential and commercial property managers improve water quality while enhancing the aesthetics of runoff areas and retention ponds.
Aquatic plants are essential to maintaining the balance of pond ecosystems throughout the Sanford area. However, without proper maintenance and vegetation management, any body of water can become an eyesore that emits undesirable odors and serves as an unwanted breeding ground for mosquitoes.
All stormwater ponds should have routine inspection schedule and periodic maintenance, including the removal of harmful exotic vegetation. Retention pond cleaning, elimination of trash and debris, aeration system repair and shoreline landscaping are essential to keeping water clean and healthy. At Edenfield Corporation, we have years of experience working directly with homeowners, property managers, developers, golf courses, industrial properties, yacht clubs, municipalities and community associations to protect their aquatic assets.

Retention Pond Maintenance
Since aquatic vegetation thrives in central Florida’s warm humid conditions, it is important to monitor and manage all overgrowth. When storm-water retention ponds are well designed and properly maintained, these runoff areas are highly effective in reducing the amount of pollutants that reach important waterways. In fact, these vegetated areas serve as a true amenity to a development, community or municipality. However, when balance is lost, aquatic vegetation and the buildup of trash and debris can become unsightly and degrade the overall quality of your pond.
After a sudden downpour, runoff is conveyed to a retention area by a combination of overland flow, ditches, swales and underground pipes. Once the stormwater reaches a retention pond, the sediment and pollutants settle to the bottom. Any overflow or gradual outfall of stormwater leaving the pond enters our area creeks and rivers as cleaner, less-polluted water. Vegetation helps balance the pond’s ecosystem but, when overgrowth becomes unsightly, it can degrade the retention pond’s function.
