Weed & Algae Control

Unlike firms that rely almost exclusively on pesticides, Princeton Hydro offers a full complement of services to manage aquatic weed and algae problems. Our team of scientists and water resource engineers has the expertise needed to properly diagnose the cause of such problems and develop solutions that are environmentally sound and cost-effective. 

The successful, long-term improvement of a lake or pond requires a proactive management approach that addresses the beyond simply reacting to weed and algae growth and other symptoms of eutrophication. Our staff can design and implement holistic, ecologically-sound solutions for the most difficult weed and algae challenges.

Integrated Pest Management is at the heart of our pond and lake restoration philosophy. This is reflected in our PARE™ program that is designed to control cyanobacteria (blue-green algae blooms).  We start with science-based analyses to accurately diagnose the cause of the problem and use this data to custom-tailor solutions specific for each lake and pond.

Correctly identifying and addressing the cause of the problem is the difference between maintenance and management, and it's what makes our lake and pond projects so successful.
