Biological Controls


A successful lake or pond restoration and management plan should include a combination of biological, mechanical and source control solutions. Floating Wetland Islands (FWIs) are a great example of an effective biological control solution. Highly adaptable, FWIs can be sized, configured and planted to fit the needs of nearly any lake, pond or reservoir. 



Floating Wetland Islands provide multiple ecological benefits:

  • Assimilate & remove excess nutrients that fuel algae growth
  • Provide habitat for fish and other aquatic organisms
  • Mitigate wave and wind erosion impacts
  • Enhance aesthetics
