Pond Construction & Maintenance

Before constructing a pond, you may need to contact your Soil and Water District Office for an assessment.

Six reasons to call BEFORE pond construction: 

  1. Determine the primary purpose of the pond.
  2. Determine if the site is suitable for a pond.
  3. Establish if permits are needed.
  4. Determine if the soils are suitable.
  5. Determine if there is an adequate watershed.
  6. Establish the size of the pond.
