Detention Pond Maintenance Services

We understand proper drainage techniques, run-off, soil absorption, and many more facets of detention basin logistics. Detention pond benefits offer many benefits, but neglecting retention pond services can increase costs significantly.
Usually, retention ponds need to be installed on developments, because there is much impermeable water in the environment. Impermeable covers like concrete structures allow water to evaporate much faster than natural vegetation. In this respect, the installation of detention tanks and drainage piping helps regulate stormwater and ensures that this water does not enter your reservoir continuously or too quickly, as this will cause more problems downstream.
Retention Pond Cleaning Services
Retention pond cleaning & weed removal are among the several pond maintenance programs offered by Lake Management Inc. (LMI). During the course of a decomposing phase, bacteria begin to accumulate in a reservoir of water, which in turn creates harmful gases like nitrogen and carbon monoxide, and smog.
Is your retention pond free from such bacteria? Unless they are removed from the retention pond safely, they may affect a healthy grass stand or spread into the pool, damaging aquatic life and fish populations. Let our vegetation management and retention pond cleaning experts clean up weedy and muddy areas in a secure & aesthetically pleasing manner.
RETENTION & DETENTION POND LANDSCAPE MANAGEMENT
Having a well-maintained retention pond to service residential areas can make a huge difference in keeping tenants happy. Most commercial and county property management budgets don’t include retention pond landscape management, even though it’s the landscape surrounding these water features that cannot handle the maintenance load and eventually impact the overall beauty of the property.
Sometimes, aeration of your landscape and new plantings help the water feature function properly, as aeration allows proper soil absorption and eliminates the risk of compacted soil formation that causes erosion and overflow.

STORMWATER POND CLEANING & MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Weed removal, retention pond cleaning, and retention pond management are among the many water feature services offered by Lake Management Inc. Retention ponds may appear extremely simple to manage, but pond cleaning can become difficult when stormwater ponds are not managed properly.
We work with apartment complexes, golf courses, cities, and counties throughout the state managing retention and detention ponds. If your pond is not maintained properly and pond cleaning is not done, then it can adversely affect the water’s ecosystem leading to decomposing plant life and the growth of toxic weeds that affect tree growth,
INLET & OUTLET MANAGEMENT SERVICES
In addition, maintaining inlets and outlets is essential to keep the water flowing in the desired direction. Keeping outlets and drains free from dirt and weeds can prevent problems. If the water sitting in a pond leaks from its draining system, it will cause infrastructure problems. Water can be held in parking lots and curb inlets. However, the impervious cover generated adversely affects the natural landscape and causes drainage issues.
The impervious cover sheds water faster when water is pumped into parking areas, thereby increasing the risk of water entering into concrete structures and the pavement, allowing cracks and potholes to develop. Therefore, keeping inlets, outlets, and walls free from pathogens growing in animal matter and pollutants found in water is extremely important to prevent drainage issues.
