Retention Pond Maintenance
Proper drainage is vital to keeping your property and landscaping safe from erosion and water damage. Retention ponds offer a reservoir to hold and filter excess water and storm run-off for neighborhoods and property. To keep retention ponds functioning correctly, they require cleanup and maintenance. As part of our landscaping services, Woodburn Landscapes offers effective retention pond maintenance in the greater Atlanta metro area.
Retention or detention ponds are used for neighborhoods and commercial properties as a drainage and wastewater solution. The ponds accumulate excess water runoff and slowly drain the water back into the underground water supply, filtering it naturally like a septic drain field. To work properly, retention ponds need to be kept clean of rubbish and debris. In addition, the edge needs to be protected from erosion, and the pond water should have adequate movement to promote aeration.
A poorly maintained retention pond will not function correctly and is likely to become an aesthetic issue. Detention ponds can become full of trash and debris that can clog inlets and outlets. If the surface water does not move as needed, algae and other biological substances can accumulate. Dirty retention ponds can become ugly and emit an unpleasant odor, as well as backup drainage onto the surrounding property.
