Are you a Connecticut (CT) homeowner with a storm-water pond on it? Maybe you are an H.O.A Manager with a problematic detention/retention basin to take care of? Do you need help maintaining your problem child, or have questions on how to do this? Proper pond maintenance is very critical and helps in the prevention of many problems that may arise from having a poorly maintained storm-water pond. Wildlife habitat destruction causes, in some cases, flooding and erosion in unplanned locations. These are issues that may occur due to a lack of maintenance. Often times this damage cannot be reversed, especially if natural bodies of water are present in close proximity.
Some maintenance services provided by TJB Inc., such as sediment removal or checking on the stability of the outlet pipe, bring to light the need for regularly scheduled pond maintenance. Sediment builds up in a pond over time and needs to be removed to ensure the pond has enough storage capacity for stormwater and to control and limit the amount of sediment that gets stirred up during rain events. The overflow or outlet in a pond is installed to meet certain controlled discharge volumes of water. Erosion and vegetation growth around the outlet or breakdown of the overflow pipe structure needs immediate repair to allow the pond to release water at the designated rate. Failure to do so in a timely manner will most likely lead to major structural damage and in turn, need a major overhaul.
Algae & Duckweed Control
Algae and Duckweed multiply rapidly... almost right in front of your eyes! It can seemingly infest and overtake a small pond almost overnight....or a quiet lake in a matter of days. Algae & Duckweed can be a major problem for homeowners, HOA's, or any large pond management scenario due to their ability to turn an otherwise beautiful pond into an unappealing mess. Luckily, controlling and maintaining algae or duckweed in ponds can be very simple. We recommend a trusted Herbicide - that is easy to use and will eliminate duckweed from your pond. There are many on the market to use so do your research to find the best solution, or have one of us here at TJB Inc, give you some ideas on what they can do to help your current pond duckweed or algae issues.
Unlike algae that grow rapidly due to excess nutrients in your pond, duckweed is commonly spread by birds flying between multiple ponds with the tiny plants clinging to their feathers. Duckweed is very evasive and given enough nitrogen and nutrients, it is possible for a new duckweed plant to be produced every 24 hours. This means that in just a few weeks, a single parent plant can result in almost 20,000 plants! At least the plants are small!
