In 2010, the City of South Burlington began a pond monitoring program. In addition to normal maintenance work and inspections, City staff will collect samples of water flowing into and out of City owned stormwater treatment ponds. These samples will be sent to the lab to analyze how effective the ponds are at removing sediment, nutrients, and pathogens from stormwater runoff.
Collection of this data confirms the proper function of the ponds and gives City staff accurate data related to pond performance.
