The Healthy Pond Series is a community-based discussion series for pond owners to learn and share stormwater pond management solutions. This workshop will provide an introduction to pond aeration, circulation, and fountains. Participants will gain an overview of the biological and physical processes that cause stratification and turnover in ponds. This session will be held at the Kimbel Lodge pond shelter and will include hands-on demonstrations of aeration concepts at Kimbel Pond. Speakers will explain options and best practices to improve pond aeration and circulation. This session is intended for pond owners in the Grand Strand area (Horry and Georgetown Counties). The Healthy Pond Series is hosted by the North Inlet – Winyah Bay NERR, Clemson Cooperative Extension and the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium.
Who should attend: HOA representatives, pond owners, pond management professionals
This is an in-person workshop. The majority of the event will be outdoors. In the event of inclement weather, the workshop will be rescheduled. We suggest wearing comfortable walking shoes. We will be walking a short distance around a pond on some uneven ground.
*COVID-19 Safety Notes – Social distancing and masking are strongly encouraged throughout the workshop.
