Pond Design and Maintenance

Ponds can be very beneficial and attractive; however, many factors need to be considered in the planning, designing, construction and maintenace of them.  Recognizing the existence and incorporation of local, state and federal authorities/guidelines in the planning of a pond are essential.  A pond may have many uses planned into its functioning, i.e., livestock watering, fish and wildlife, recreation, fire control, and other related uses.  They may be either an embankment or an excavated type of a pond.

The SWCD has a Professional Engineer on staff who is available to assist anyone who is considering the planning, design or construction of a pond.  Assistance is also available to answer questions or make recommendations dealing with pond maintenance.
