Mountain Lake & Pond Management, Inc. offers over 50 years combined experience in lake and pond management. We specialize in using the most environmentally sound practices for managing undesirable aquatic vegetation, and only E.P.A. registered aquatic herbicides.

Our licensed applicators are certified with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture, and strive to utilize the latest application technology.

In addition to the services described above we offer the following:
