Adding or Removing a Retention Pond? Texas Has the Company for You!

Whether you need one or you need to get rid of one, it’s not always easy dealing with a retention pond. Texas land can be hard to work with, especially if it’s extraordinarily dry or wet, so you really do need a professional who knows how to handle these ponds in order to make sure that you can enjoy your land and make the most use out of it.

Why Do I Want a Retention Pond?

Retention ponds are beautiful. They make a great addition to any property. Retention ponds maintain stable levels of water when built correctly, and they are great for livestock and fishing.

On that note, a retention pond can keep topsoil and other nutritive dirt from being washed away. It provides a place for rain runoff to go that doesn’t involve flowing through your property. A well-conceived and built pond can channel excess water into it so you don’t have to worry about being flooded out every time it rains.

The unique feature of a retention pond is that it roughly maintains the same amount of water all year. Except for extreme droughts, it will keep steady level. On a large enough scale you could even go out boating!

Why Don’t I Want a Retention Pond?

On large tracts of land, they are going to attract wildlife. These ponds are very natural and some come close to being considered lakes. If you love nature though, this is a great option for you.

Since retention ponds are standing water, you might also find that living near one can pose a problem in mosquito season. There numbers increase since that’s where they like to lay their eggs. Places near standing water often have much bigger issues with water-born bugs than places without.
