Water Quality Test Programs
Know the Condition of Your Pond
LakePro has recently expanded the water quality program in order to provide more testing options to our clients. We feel that every waterbody would benefit from having the water periodically tested to create a profile of characteristics, watch for any changes, and to check for any harmful bacteria, such as E. coli.
The LakePro Standard Pond Analysis allows you to gain a better understanding of the overall health of your waterbody. Your easy-to-understand report will create a profile that compares your waterbody to the averages of Michigan ponds.
LakePro can tailor a testing program based on your waterbody, concerns, and budget. We also have testing programs for toxic pollutants, depth profiles, sediment testing, and much more!

Standard Pond Analysis
Our Standard Pond Analysis tests for the most common parameters requested in smaller water bodies. Your results are compared to EPA and State Water Quality Standards. Continued testing also allows us to compare your results to historical results to determine trends and changes. Parameters included are, Temperature, Dissolved Oxygen, Phosphates, pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Conductivity, and Salinity.
The Standard Pond Analysis requires water sample collection and field testing. Samples collected are preserved and brought back to our laboratory for testing. A summary of your data is usually available within 7 days.
Customize Your Water Quality Analysis
Not everyone needs a full analysis. We can tailor your program to your water quality needs. If you just need your nutrients tested, we can do that! If you want your water tested for everything under the sun, we can o that too! We offer hundreds of parameters and testing options, including:
- Sediment Testing
- Heavy Metals
- E. coli
- Fecal Coliform
- Algal Toxin Testing
- …and more
E. Coli Testing
LakePro also offers E. coli testing to ensure the safety of your beach. We follow the EPA’s Method 1603: E. coli in Water by Membrane Filtration. Results are typically available 1-3 days after collection.
Some changes you make to your pond, such as aeration, may require a permit. Sometimes these permits require in-depth testing for multiple years. LakePro can assist you in the testing as well as the permitting process.
Easy to Read Reports
Oftentimes, when you get your water tested at a laboratory, you receive back a list of items and numbers with no explanation.
Unlike those other labs, we will provide you with an explanation of results that are easy to read along with the numerical data.
