Dredging Lakes, Ponds and Waterways in Florida
It is important to first remember that most lakes, canals, ponds and waterways in Florida’s low elevation coastal regions are there for the main purpose of water retention and removal from heavy rains and hurricanes to protect local area homes, businesses and roadways.
So, while lakes, ponds, canals, and other waterways are most times a beautiful property value enhancement, they are there to protect local roads and real estate from flooding and it is important that your local pond or lake also retain its retention abilities as well as its beauty.
To do this, dredging is a routine component to the overall aesthetics and benefits of a local pond or lake. Aeration fountains, proper shoreline control and the ongoing management of algae, weeds and fertilizer runoff will help reduce the need of dredging your lake or pond. Dredging preserve its depth for capturing and holding rain and flood waters.
