Water Quality Restoration for Coastal Subdivision Retention Ponds
Lake Edmonds Study, Charleston, South Carolina
The Water Quality Restoration for Coastal Subdivision Retention Ponds project is an integrated study aimed at determining links between residential land use and pond water quality in the coastal zone.
Coastal retention ponds are part of Best Management Practices (BMPs), which were established to control quantity and quality of storm water runoff to the natural aquatic ecosystems.
In fact, retention ponds constructed in commercial and residential developments are important for various reasons.
The goal of this project is ultimately to educate and involve community (students and homeowners) in the water quality restoration project in order to increase their interest in water quality problems in retention ponds and the human impact on environmental health.
