Microbio Retention Ponds

The Importance of Microbio Retention Ponds


Many areas in the United States experience an extremely high level of storm water runoff annually. Man made features such as parking lots, parking garages, and strip malls can exacerbate the effects of large amounts of rainfall by channeling all of the water into one area. Over time, this effect can have a dramatic negative consequence on property and natural ecology. Storm runoff that first runs through parking lots often carries with it large quantities of pollutants such as motor oil and human garbage. A good solution to this problem is to construct a microbio retention pond.


A good microbio retention pond is usually placed in an area that experiences a large amount of storm water runoff. The purpose of the retention pond is to gather all of the potentially polluted and chemical laden water in one area and allow it to percolate down through the soil and the plants at the base of the pond. This prevents polluted water run off from getting into the water supply or other delicate ecosystems.
