This popular freshwater pond suffered from sedimentation and excessive amounts of nutrients. It was restored by removing a considerable amount of sediment from the pond, building a weir across the incoming stream channel to trap sediment before it reaches the pond, and creating a pond edge and adjacent conservation buffer strip of native plants around most of the pond. This vegetation filters out stormwater pollutants and enhances wildlife habitat.
To View The Site: The site is adjacent to the entrance to Town Park on Route 137 (Westchester Avenue) in the Town of Pound Ridge.
