Storm Retention Ponds


It starts with an assessment of the storm retention pond(s) to have a clearer understanding of the requirements to remediate the water in storm retention cells. We look at water chemistry, muck, invertebrates, algae species, aquatic weeds, riparian zone, wildlife, and bathymetry. Once the data is collected and analysed, we can recommend the solutions required to transform the body of water into a desirable body of water to live beside.

Recommendations & Maintenance

We use the data collected from the assessment to determine our comprehensive treatment plan so we can achieve the desired outcomes. This also provides us with a baseline data to compare to after treatments commence to ensure we are working in the right direction. Our staff provides full maintenance and monitoring services after the recommendations are implemented to ensure the desired outcomes are met.

Expected outcomes:

  • Visibility attractive ponds

  • Decreased muck

  • Increased biodiversity

  • No foul odour

  • Decreased algae

  • Decreased aquatic weeds

  • Healthier & safer water

  • Decreased duckweed

  • Decreased nutrient load

  • Improved water clarity
