To Save Lakes…
Whatever it takes.
To make lakes HEALTHIER using natural, sustainable strategies that work!
In a healthy lake excess weeds, algae, muck and pathogens naturally disappear.
- When you work with nature, restoration is affordable.
- When restoration is affordable, it puts you in control of the future of the lake.
We’ve been in your shoes. We understand what it is like to see weeds, algae and muck take over a lake. We have lived through the anxiety and anger of not knowing whether the lake you love will be able to be enjoyed by your children and grand children.
It drove us to look deeply into nature for answers and literally comb the globe for solutions that work. We won’t stop until your lake is restored and on path to remain healthy for generations to come. Our story is your story…
Our Unique Capability and Commitment…
Our search for answers to solve weed algae and muck problems goes beyond just finding technologies that work. Our lakes are under constant threat. The excess nutrients that fuel weed and algae growth relentlessly flow to your lake from every fertilized lawn and farm field with every storm, with every every season.
Technology alone is not enough to restore your lake and keep it healthy. It takes a bullet-proof process, flawless execution and a highly trained, dedicated team working every day to keep our systems operating in peak condition.
Lake Savers was formed in 2007. Our Founder, John Tucci brings more than 20 years of business leadership experience to the table helping Fortune 500 Companies such as Pfizer, United Airlines, Abbott Laboratories, Waste Management, General Electric and many others improve their business processes and profitablity. We’ve applied these same techniques to building the Lake Savers Team and Full Service Management Process that delivers both fast and lasting results.
Because of our confidence in our people and process, we are willing to offer performance-based contracting that ensures accountability for results for many years to come.
The Birth of Lake Savers
BY: John Tucci – President of Lake Savers
In 1999 my wife and I bought a small cottage on a nice 165 acre lake in Michigan. I grew up on a lake in Maine and I wanted to share that experience with our daughter.
When we purchased the property, the water was clear, the surface clean, and there was a nice gravel bottom off of our shoreline. Right around that time, Eurasian Water Milfoil invaded our lake. Within a season, the milfoil had taken over large sections of the lake.
Our Lake Association knew we had to take immediate action. We hired experts and did what we were told. We initiated an aggressive herbicide program for the lake. At first, the program was successful. We got the milfoil under control. We thought the problem was solved. We were wrong.
By 2003 my wife and I finally moved to the lake after restoring the cottage. We couldn’t wait to enjoy the lake. Unfortunately, on our daughter’s first swim in the lake, we discovered that our once nice gravel-bottom shoreline was now plagued by over a foot of black, smelly, greasy muck. Her bathing suit was so black after a few minutes in the water that my wife pulled her out and immediately took her up to the house for a bath. We had to throw her bathing suit away.
Needless to say, this was heart-wrenching. We had just spent lots of money purchasing this property and lots of time, effort and money rebuilding the cottage. After all of that, we couldn’t even go for a swim in the lake where just four years prior we had a clean gravel bottom and clear water. I started to project what the lake might look like in 5-10 years. I realized that our lake property might not be the legacy I had planned on passsing on to my children and their children. I had to do something about it.
I discovered that the invasive over-growth of milfoil and our well-intentioned herbicide program to control the problem was actually causing the rapid accumulation of organic muck and deteriorating water quality in our lake. My research led me to assemble the world’s most effective all-natural biotechnologies that stop, reverse, and repair nutrient overloading. Since 2004 when Lake Savers was born, we’ve restored over 40 lakes and reservoirs to optimum health.
Lake Savers takes the health of your lake as seriously as you do.
We’ve been in your shoes…we are still in your shoes. We will work as hard at restoring your lake as we did on my own lake. We save lakes. It’s what we do. It’s that simple.
