Pond Site Evaluation
There are many factors to consider when putting in a pond. Two of the most important are determining if your location will hold water and whether the watershed is big enough to fill the pond. Roxsol will test the soil and evaluate the watershed at your site to determine site compatibility with a pond.
Selecting a suitable site for your pond is important, and preliminary studies are needed before final design and construction. Analysis and selection of pond sites should be based on landscape structure and associated ecological functions and values. Relationship of the site to other ecological features within the landscape is critical to achieving planned objectives. If possible, consider more than one location and study each one to select the most ecologically appropriate, esthetic, and practical site. Weighing both onsite and offsite effects of constructing a pond is essential in site selection.
