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.

Truxor T30

Our Truxor T30 has the ability to cut tough emergent species like Phragmites and Narrowleaf cattail! The cattail cutter efficiently cuts the reeds above and below water. Cattail cutting is best done in the fall. Cutting them before they start to turn yellow is very important, because they are storing energy to emerge next spring. 

Doro Pump

Our Truxor also has the ability to suction dredge! The auger creates a slurry that is pumped onto shore in a dewatering bag. The telescopic extension allows us to dredge to a max depth of 8ft. The Truxor is a specially designed amphibious wetland machine. It's track system allows for quick and easy movement in deep muck and open water. It can drive from land directly into the water. This suction dredge uses a 4" discharge hose to pump liquid sediment up to 1000 ft from the project. The dredge material must dewater on shore in dewatering bags until it is dry enough to move. Dredge material must be disposed of at an upland site, reducing the risk of runoff entering a body of water. 

Our Recent Work

Doro Pump

Our Doro pump attachment suction dredging organic sediment from a lake bottom. Our Doro Pump dredge has a maximum dredge depth of 8 feet. 

Doro Digger

Our Doro Digger allows us to perform hydraulic dredging in up to 9 feet of water. Tough emergent plants like Cattail and Phragmites are easy excavated and brought to shore.

Truxor T30 in action

Watch as our Truxor cuts through extremely tough Phragmites. These plants are over 12 ft tall and have easily outcompeted the native broadleaf cattail nearby.
