Watkins Meadow Stormwater Pond 

 

As a part of the County's effort to protect our waters, the stormwater pond  (Pond - 10855) within the Watkins Meadow community was selected for upgrade because of its age and need for maintenance, as well as to help reduce stormwater pollution draining into our streams.

Watkins Meadow pond was converted from a dry pond to a wet pond, meaning it now holds water permanetly and provides improved water quality benefits for the Seneca Creek Watershed. Prior to the pond improvements water was held temporarily after storms and was otherwise dry between storms. Other improvements to the pond include; 1) replacement of the old riser structure with a new concrete riser, 2) safety upgrades to the dam embankment to prevent water seepage, and 3) the planting of trees, shrubs and aquatic plants to provide aquatic habitat and to enhance to overall ecology in and around the pond.   

Various public events were held throughout the design phase for residents to learn about and provide input on the project.
