Herbicide applications via spray system utilizing a utility vehicle and/or boat.

Steadfast Environmental specializes in best management practices by identifying invasive and exotic plant species within your Lakes, Ponds and Conservation areas. Applicators are licensed through the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services to ensure proper herbicide application rates as well as waterway approved products.

Not all aquatic vegetation is bad! Interestingly enough, there are a wide variety of native, beneficial species that we encourage to promote and propagate around your waterway. These flowering plant species include Arrowhead, Duck Potato, Pickerelweed and several species of Canna. Other common Florida native species include Bulrush & Club rush which can be found along shorelines and littoral zones. Aside from enhancing aesthetic beauty, these plants can aid in bank stabilization and erosion control.


Call today to learn how Steadfast Environmental can use biological control for pesky submersed vegetation including Hydrilla & Slender Spikerush. Triploid grass carp are genetically sterile meaning they do not have the ability to reproduce. Typically their life span ranges from 3-5 years. This is an excellent method of natural submersed vegetation control.


Builders, developers and occasionally homeowners deal with turbid water conditions due to excess site runoff. Steadfast Environmental offers solutions for long term control to reducing suspended solids within your waterway.



Steadfast Environmental encourages promotion and propagation of native, beneficial aquatic plants to enhance the over ecosystem and aesthetics of your waterway! Beautify your shoreline, littoral shelf or wetland area with low lying aquatic cover. Bare root plants as well as container grown mature plants are always available.


Physical & Mechanical removals are also one of our many services offered. This is the ideal way to get instantaneous results in regard to aquatic weed control and maintenance. Depending on the environmental conditions, these removals can be done with equipment, or by hand with a mitigation crew



No matter what mother nature may bring you, STEADFAST IS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU!

When a catastrophe occurs such as a Hurricane, we have the capabilities and manpower to respond immediately. Resources from Steadfast will be available in the event of an emergency to ensure our customers have access to crews and equipment quickly. Safety before and after a storm is our primary focus.

Immediately following the storm, our teams will ensure:

  • Vehicle access is cleared, allowing emergency personnel access.
  • Debris from structural dwellings that may pose immediate risk is cleared.
  • Plant material that may have a chance of surviving is replanted.
  • Hazardous damaged limbs that remain in trees are trimmed and removed.
  • Tree limbs,root balls,or largewood debris remaining on the ground is chipped and removed.
  • Final restoration of any remaining damages or losses resulting from the storm is performed.


Stormwater runoff is generated from rain that flows over land or impervious surfaces, such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, and does not soak into the ground. Runoff can pick up and deposit harmful pollutants like trash, chemicals, and dirt/sediment into streams, lakes, and groundwater. Construction sites, lawns, improperly stored hazardous wastes, and illegal dumping are all potential sources of stormwater pollutants.

Stormwater management is the redirection of storm water off streets, lawns, driveways, and other sites by drainage structures such as culvert pies, box drains, catch basins, etc.


Storm water drains such as culvert pipes, allow water to flow under structures such as a road, driveway, and other obstructions to the waterflow.  


Storm drain systems use drainage structures to also prevent pollution, erosion, and flooding. Stormwater drains are different from sewage drains because they do not carry water to any sewer system.


Retention basins are designed to store runoff for about 72 hours to allow water to seep through soil into the shallow groundwater aquifer. A basin can be man-made or it can be a natural, flat depression.

A dry retention system holds a certain amount of stormwater and through percolation (over about 72 hours) dries. This type of system has a “popoff” or overflow that allows water to overflow or be discharged during a storm event that is bigger than the system was designed to handle.



Do you get frustrated with quarterly county maintenance on your drainage ditches and swales? In between maintenance events these areas can grow tall and unsightly, often times they are holding water and can be too soft for equipment or hand removal. Additionally, buildup of vegetation can cause improper drainage function potentially leading to flooding issues. Our boom mower attachment can access these hard to reach areas while leaving little footprint behind. Have Steadfast Environmental service your home front or community drainage swales on a monthly basis for increased property value and peace of mind.
