Stormwater Retention Ponds
Stormwater Pond Cleaning - Retention Pond Cleaning
Stormwater retention ponds are a very necessary part of water management in Florida. The water runoff from storm drains keeps roads and parking lots from flooding in heavy rains. Stormwater retention ponds that fill up with aquatic weeds, trash, and sediment, hinder the collection of that rain runoff, potentially causing a flooding problem.
Not only is an overgrown retention pond an eyesore, but it can also become a safety issue. Garbage, debris, and overgrown weeds can collect and prevent excess rainwater from draining into it. In turn streets, sidewalks, and yards can become flooded, creating damage and pose a risk to public safety. A neglected retention pond is also a fertile breeding ground for snakes, mosquitoes and yes even alligators!

In Florida, storm water retention ponds play a vital role by preventing flooding and erosion. Stormwater retention ponds improve the quality of local canals, rivers, lakes, and ponds. It is essential that the government agencies responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of these areas ensure that they remain clear and able to retain water.
