The more native plant species your body of water supports, the more nutrients it can provide to native wildlife. Local plants can supply food to lake and pond fish while also helping to maintain levels of oxygen and other essential elements. Certain animals even use the vegetation along littoral zones as a habitat for shelter.
Littoral shelves are also a part of stormwater retention systems. Littoral shelves are located by the outflow structure of storm water retention ponds to remove excess nutrients from the water before leaving the site, either through percolation or the out-flow structure itself. Littoral shelves also provide a habitat for birds, fish, and other animals.
Local government agencies monitor these areas and require them to be maintained in compliance with local land development requirements. We provide littoral shelf maintenance throughout Pasco County and the surrounding areas.
Blue Water Aquatics can effectively manage your littoral shelf compliance. If you have received notice from a government agency that your littoral shelf is not in compliance, give us a call so we can help you get in compliance.
