Step 1: Assessment

Your journey to clean, safe, and enjoyable water starts when you send a water sample to our industry-leading water diagnostic laboratory. It’s there where our team of algal research specialists uses state-of-the-art technology to assess and understand what’s going on below the surface.

From evaluating herbicide effectiveness to ensuring regulatory compliance and quantifying water quality parameters according to EPA analytical methods, our meticulous analysis forms the foundation for tailored solutions. Let us guide you towards a clear and effective path forward.

Step 2: Prescription

Our recommendations go beyond generic solutions for surface-level symptoms. The more comprehensive the assessment, the more targeted we can be in providing a prescription that suits the exact needs of your waterbody.

Our prescriptive solutions are designed to address the current challenges with practical and intentional implementation strategies to deliver results you can see.

Step 3: Implementation

You’re now ready to take action against the aquatic challenges you’re facing. Once we’ve identified and quantified the water quality issues and designed a prescription, implementation of the treatment is made possible

Whether you are a professional lake manager or a do-it-yourself homeowner, we can assist you. If you need a professional, qualified water management company, we can connect you with one of our many Stewards of Water.
