We Professionally Construct and Maintain Retention Ponds

Retention ponds, or stormwater ponds, are necessary in hardscape areas that your property and the surrounding area may have. They will also minimize erosion. If you avoid their construction, you risk major flooding from runoff when all of the cement and asphalt areas block rainwater from absorbing into the ground. Not to mention, these ponds are now required in many municipalities.

Water Worx is here to execute the construction of a retention pond for your property and protect it. If you already have a retention pond and it is not functioning as it should, we can help you there, too.

What is in a retention pond?

In a retention pond you will find a permanent body of water that can absorb extra stormwater runoff. A retention pond is created to contain and treat runoff from paved surfaces that cannot be absorbed into the ground. The ponds collect this often polluted water and treat it before it releases underground or into another body of water. Retention ponds help:

  • Control erosion.
  • Improve water quality in surrounding areas.
  • Increase biodiversity.
  • Prevent floods.
  • Conserve water.

Water Worx can make sure the retention pond you need is constructed the right way in the correct location. We understand how important they are for the neighborhood and surrounding communities so you can trust us to do the job with integrity and accountability. Contact us to learn more.

What is the difference between a retention and detention pond?

The differences between a retention pond and a detention pond include:

  • A retention pond is a permanent body of water while a detention pond collects water only temporarily, remaining dry most of the time.
  • A detention pond is much smaller than a retention pond.
  • A detention pond does not improve the water quality while a retention pond naturally processes water for better quality.

How do you maintain a retention pond?

To maintain a retention pond, you should:

  • Periodically remove any debris or silt buildup.
  • Maintain the vegetation around the pond and limit overgrowth.
  • Inspect the headwall, weir and other components regularly.
  • Check the drains for any obstructions.

What is the function of a retention pond?

The function of a retention pond is to catch stormwater runoff to prevent nearby landscapes from eroding. The main difference between a retention pond and a detention pond is that a retention pond usually has water that remains in it, whereas a detention pond does not. A retention pond can be a great addition to a neighborhood to protect properties. To learn more about getting a retention pond, give us a call today
