Pond Inspection prior to
A healthy well maintained lake or pond on a property adds tremendous
monetary as well as aesthetic value. Like wise, a poorly maintained water
resource detracts from the value and can cost significant sums of money to
repair. Just like the house inspection preformed prior to closing on a home
purchase, it is crucial to request and have a pond inspection as part of
that do diligence. A proper pond inspection can only come from some one who
has years of experience in construction, repair, and maintenance of water
resources. As a pond builder, we at Catskill Pond have that experience.

Catskill Pond offers many services for the smallest pond to largest lakes. A
detailed listing of services is located with our
services. Most lake associations and private
lakes require water analysis on a yearly basis, monitoring of vegetation,
safety requirements in beach and swimming areas, dock inspection and repair,
as well as fish management, and wildlife control. Spring time inspection of
dam and spillways, gate valves, shoreline erosion as well as removal of
large trees in water that can cause damage as well as building of carp
retention fences are some of the many things that need to be done around
your water resources. Prior DEC permits and approval are sometimes needed
and at Catskill Pond we will advise the land owner of all necessary permits
and approvals as well as assist in the applications.
We are also firm believers of
posting and associated signage to inform the public on the use of designated
areas and no trespassing.
There are many topics associated
with lake management that are confusing but can be easily explained with an
on site lake evaluation. We can develop a site plan that will include a
detailed wish list and time line of future plans and improvements to your
site. With this forward thinking plan developed with the owner, this
working blue print becomes the guide to the most cost effective and properly
Residential swim ponds, fish
ponds and farm ponds require the same attention as the bigger lakes.
Because these waters have a smaller ecosystem change (good or bad) can
happen rapidly. It is therefore important to have yearly evaluations
to determine any existing problems and guard against future ones.
Restoring a neglected
pond to its original luster is a specialty we enjoy and have years
of valuable experience in.
