Fee for Service

Local governments, lake and community groups, businesses, and individuals can hire Golden Sands RC&D to conduct specific projects within our areas of expertise.

"Due to the knowledge and skills of AIS from Golden Sands we residents are equipped to help monitor and keep EM and Phragmites from taking over this beautiful peaceful lake. We are very close to eradicating [them] because Golden Sands has the discipline and professional expertise to assist us." - Helen Klimowicz, Sunset Lake

"All of your and Golden Sands RC&D's AIS work makes a big difference and provides great support to Spring Lake Management District as we become more proficient at recognizing EWM and work with various divers to remove [AIS] from Spring Lake." - Marty Wilke, Spring Lake Management District
