It is our goal to provide our clients with a fully functional DASH boat or Skimmer ready for operation.
We provide training and safety instructions. Our watercras are self-propelled (unless requested otherwise) while others are using dive barges that require an additional boat to position them wherever they are going to work.
We have the resources, facilities, crew, customer support and supplies to work with you to build the perfect boat for you and your lake’s situation. We can help you get ahold of other resources to help you along the way as well, from locating important resources in your area, to assistance in the process of filing the necessary paperwork, permits and forms that come along with the process of managing our natural resources such as lakes.
Most clients need to do some homework of their own, learning about the process from start to finish, and we can help with that too. From helping you locate divers and study local regulations, Duxnaro is there with you for the whole journey.
We know that our clients have a wide variety of needs and we’re here to make it as easy on you as possible to get the job done.
Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) as a service has been available for over two decades now.
As the DASH industry grows and matures, this natural, non-invasive approach to lake management will offer healthy, natural results for our inland lakes.
The need for a safe alternative to harsh chemicals to remove invasive plant species, such as Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM), has been unavailable for many associations until recently. Due in part to past successes with DASH, this option is growing in availability with our help.
We are beginning to see a growing awareness and concern emerging. Lake Associations, after decades of unsatisfactory results from the use of herbicides, seeing how disastrous the use of herbicides have been, are now looking for safer, more effective, non-chemical approaches to their invasive plant and muck issues. DASH and Restorative Lake Sciences (RLS) is that option.
Professional divers are important to our DASH efforts. Until recently, this industry’s divers have not had the education in either commercial diving or environmental harvest experience. This is now changing. As awareness and experience with the invasive plants becomes the norm, more lake associations are having success finding and hiring those with familiarity for this extraction method, bringing the favorable results in the containment and removal of aquatic invasive species they’ve been looking for.
If you find yourself in need of additional resources or are curious what the process looks like, here are a couple links to short videos of the DASH system in operation with divers underwater.
