Retention ponds are a common stormwater management tactic designed to relieve flooding concerns from heavy residential and urban areas. 

Since heavily populated areas are responsible for the most polluted stormwater runoff, adding retention ponds to hold excess water after a storm can mitigate flood concerns and stormwater pollution.

Valor Environmental offers retention pond maintenance designed to maintain the integrity of your retention pond and ensure a clean water supply. We work with municipalities, cities, golf courses, and residential HOAs to help maintain the integrity and cleanliness of your retention pond so that your community is safe. 

What Is a Retention Pond?

A retention pond is a manmade pond designed to collect excess stormwater runoff after a heavy storm. Retention ponds are useful tools for residential areas outside of population-dense areas where flooding from stormwater runoff is a major concern. 

Retention ponds are designed to prevent flooding and pollution from sediment erosion and stormwater runoff. One key benefit of retention ponds is that they hold water in place, which allows it to be treated before being discharged into public water systems. 

Retention ponds may also serve an aesthetic purpose for landscaping, such as in residential communities and golf courses. This is why frequent retention pond cleaning and maintenance is so essential in maintaining the appearance of your retention pond. 

Why Is Retention Pond Maintenance Important?

Retention pond maintenance ensures that ponds can handle excess water without fear of erosion or pollution to surrounding areas, including nearby vegetation. 

Frequent retention pond cleaning is also important to prevent pollution of stormwater that is collected in the basin and to maintain its appearance, free of bacteria and algae. 

Since stormwater maintenance is required by the Clean Water Act, stormwater basins or retention ponds serve as an effective solution to excess runoff that cannot be controlled properly.
