Need Pond Consultant
Hi All! We just bought a house that has a five acre private pond. Its been almost 30 years since I had anything to do with private lakes or ponds, but I can tell from looking at this one, both the fish habitat and aquatic vegetation is out of balance a good bit.
I need a good, honest, economical fish biologist, aquatic engineer or someone comparable that can help me get this pond right. If I don't start dealing with the vegetation issues soon, I am afraid I am going to have a 'dead' pond in a couple years.
I went to the DGIF site and they have a good bit of info on pond management including a list of consultants. The only problem is there are no reviews or anyway, short of calling them all, to get more definitive information.
Would appreciate input from anyone here who has had a similar experience/requirement in the mid-northern VA area.
