5 Important Facts About Retaining Ponds

1. More retaining ponds installed connected to each other works better than a single installation

They often say “two heads are better than one.” This is true for a retaining pond as well. Having more than one retaining pond installed will provide more efficiency with stormwater purification and, of course, retention too. More wet ponds installed also allow for more storage of water retained.

2. The entire pond is not filled to the brim with water

Only around 50 to 75% for the retaining pond stores water. The rest of the retaining pool remains shallow towards the banks to avoid accidental drowning.  

3. Runoff prevision

Retaining pond installation includes a process that allows the pond to run down excess water during heavy rains.

4. Natural filtration system

Before water enters the pond, the plants at the edge work like a makeshift filtration system, ensuring cleaner water enters the retention pool.
