Cutting the water lilies will help control them. However, this option will need to be repeated several times during the growing season to control new growth. Furthermore, the cut lilies will need to be manually removed from the pond.
Dredging a pond can remove the roots of water lilies and all other plants, along with nutrients they may need. Manual dredging is hard work but can be used in a small pond to remove the water lilies. Dragging a hard tined rake along the pond's bottom can remove water lily roots.
