Excavation Underway At Ashley Pond

-A A +A
By John Severance

The County’s contractor, RMCI, began excavation of Ashley Pond this week. Last week, all remaining ducks were gathered and transported to facilities at the county’s Pajarito Cliffs Site, where they will remain until the project is completed. Care of the ducks is being provided by the Duck Buddies, a local group. The pond was drained and fish removed by the end of the day on Saturday. Approximately 60 fish, some 24inches long, were removed and taken to the Eco-Station. The county announced last week that the pond would not be re-stocked in November; however, this is incorrect. The pond will be restocked using a special “fish recipe” to safely re-introduce aquatic life into the pond that is beneficial to its operation, as well as providing an attraction. The types of fish include sunfish, catfish, bass and trout. Some of the fish will be stocked this fall, with others being added in the spring, as conditions for cold and warm water ponds and the type of fish that can be introduced may vary from season to season.
