Riese aquatic weed removal

Do you live on a lake or pond with an excess amount of seaweed, algae, or invasive aquatic plants? Riese aquatics is here to help. We specialize in aquatic plant removal. We remove plants by the root by using Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) allowing for invasive plant control without the use of chemicals. This seaweed removal technique is ranked number one for aquatic invasive plant management while improving the ecosystem’s health.

Dredging Services

We offer both suction and hydraulic dredging services. Whether your lakefront is filling in with silt/sediment or you would like your pond cleaned, we do projects of all sizes! Dredging can be very beneficial in high traffic boating areas, neglected ponds, and swimming areas. Dredging sediment increases water depth and also removes a portion of the seed bank developed from aquatic plants. Our suction dredges create a slurry and pump it into dewatering bags on shore. 

Suction Dredging

Suction dredging utilizes a diver(s) to ​suck up sediment from a lakebed/pond and then discharg​es the ​material into a dewatering bag to drain! Suction dredging is great in smaller areas and areas that have restricted access to heavy machines.

Hydraulic​ Dredging

Hydraulic dredging utilizes an excavator and sealed dump truck to haul the dredge material! All dredge permitting is handled by Riese Aquatics!
