Why 'fix' Ashley Pond

-A A +A

Recently, I have received questions from members of the public regarding an upcoming project to make improvements at Ashley Pond Park.
This is a project that has been in the county’s capital improvement program for more than two years, however, with so many projects going on inside the county, it’s easy to understand that some residents may not have heard about all of the various aspects of the project, or why it is so desperately needed. I’d like to try and explain the project and elaborate a bit on how we got to where we are today.
If you’ve been to Ashley Pond lately, you’ve probably noticed the serious issues with water quality that have emerged. The pond is in the early stages of eutrophication, which stated simply means that the pond is dying due to lack of oxygen.
There were likely many contributing factors, including overabundant fish population, inadequate recirculation of water, and pollutants conveyed by the collection of storm water runoff. Regardless of the cause, the only way to fix the problem at this point is to drain, dredge and rebuild the pond.
