It is a large pond at 32 acres with most of it ranging from 4-6 feet deep and in some areas 8-12 feet deep.

What is the best method to handle lily pads and algae bloom that has happened?

Overall the fish in the pond are healthy and the population is recovering well but there is much work to be done.

How many lilies(surface acres) are in the pond? Glyphosates work well, but killing them can create more algae.

The pond is 32 acres total but I'd guess 2-4 acres of lily pads.
