Protect Your Local Pond with Tips from Clemson Extension
Do you have a pond or fountain in your neighborhood? These local bodies of water help prevent flooding in communities and treat polluted runoff during rainstorms to protect bigger water sources. If not properly maintained, however, your local pond can contribute to poor water quality, shoreline erosion, and damage biodiversity.
Clemson University Extension has launched a new website that provides information on maintaining and protecting local ponds in neighborhoods and on community and business properties. Visit their website handbook to learn how to manage your pond’s water quality, prevent contamination, and identify disruptive species.
Ponds are so prevalent in South Carolina – the Extension added an advertising campaign to emphasis proper pond management solutions. Read more about their campaign here.
