About Lake & Wetland Management

The Founders of Lake & Wetland Management

Brothers, Brian and Stuart Fischer, formed the Florida corporation Lake & Wetland Management, Inc. in 1992. Lake & Wetland Management is a family-owned and operated company that has been providing the highest level of environmental services throughout Florida for over 28 years including:


The company has since blossomed from one skiff boat operator into 9 growing office locations, giving us the ability to pave the way to a healthier and safer environment throughout the state. 

Protecting Florida’s Natural Areas for Years

Our family of State-certified technicians and senior biologists have been providing environmental services including: 

  • Waterways
  • Wetlands
  • Preserves
  • Canals
  • Lakes
  • Rivers

We take pride in leading the industry in environmental services. We have an exemplary reputation with many Florida government agencies, builders, developers, property managers, and homeowner associations.

Lake & Wetland Management currently oversees over 5,000 waterways in diverse areas throughout the state of Florida. Within these areas are some of Florida’s most prestigious golf courses, associated residential communities and development districts that demand the highest level of service. Our company is fully insured, carrying coverage to protect our customers, including workman’s compensation, liability, and property damage.

Overseeing Government Waterways in Florida

Stormwater maintenance in your community is an essential part of what we do. We focus on keeping aging stormwater systems clean and clear of excessive overgrown vegetation. Florida averages over 50 inches of rain per year and a compromised stormwater system can easily become the victim of devastating flooding.

In many South Florida communities, littoral shelf mitigation is required by jurisdictional agencies and is held to a higher standard due to their location along the waterways behind residences. Our company has pioneered and implemented several practices that are now standard to the industry in order to maintain these littoral shelves in exemplary condition throughout the year.

Stabilizing Lake & Pond Shoreline Erosion

One of the main environmental issues that Florida suffers from and is often overlooked is Erosion. Throughout our 28 years in business, Lake & Wetland has worked with several methods of erosion control. Our pursuit is to stabilize erosion along lakes, ponds, rivers, canals, hillsides, beaches, and dunes in the eco-friendliest manner possible.
