Retention and Detention Pond Maintenance
Residential HOAs, commercial property managers, and Property owners are often responsible for the proper function of your retention/detention pond. General maintenance of the land surrounding the pond, required mosquito control, removing of debris, and overall lawn care can make Best Management Practices (BMP) seem like a separate property to manage altogether. L&M provides a comprehensive Retention and Detention Pond Maintenance plan for your property to keep your pond functioning properly and able to pass inspection.
A properly maintained pond is required to minimize flooding of surrounding areas and help in removing various pollutants brought in from rainwater runoff. A failing pond can lead to an increase in insects, a build up of unpleasant odors, and a dangerous environment for your tenets to interact with. These ponds often fail to function properly from out of control weed growth, clogged flow pipes, improperly sloped sides, and generally insufficient pond access.
