Your stormwater pond plays an integral role in your local community, and you need to help it perform that role efficiently. Your stormwater facility is specially designed to manage to flood and reduce contaminants from rainwater.

Your community depends on the stormwater pond to function properly, especially when it rains, so you need to properly care for it. Become a proactive steward by:

  • Conducting annual stormwater inspections. This enables you to determine the current conditions and be sure that all components are functioning as designed. If not, regular inspections will help you identify issues and correct them before they become more severe and costly to remediate.
  • Seeking bathymetric evaluation. Determining the depth of silt and where it’s concentrated is important for the management of your stormwater pond. A heavy buildup of sediment will displace storage capacity and could minimize the effectiveness and functionality of this system.
  • Planning for future repairs and maintenance such as dredging, dam repairs, and other expected significant costs, and accounting for the budgetary impacts they’ll have.

Capitalize on an ecologically balanced and sustainable lake and pond management program that gives your local community peace of mind knowing they have a comprehensive, all-inclusive program in place that takes away the burden of management, leaving them all the benefits of an aesthetically pleasing aquatic ecosystem that is a focal point for the community.
