Water Retention Ponds
Water treatment for retention ponds
Where there’s standing water, there is a substantial risk for both pollutants to accumulate (if the water is not properly managed or siphoned) and for vector-borne issues and illnesses to develop over time. But as our urban and suburban neighborhoods have continued to grow through the decades, the need to properly divert, store and dispose of water has also increased—and water retention ponds have become an integral part of our civic infrastructure.
Especially in wetter climates, with more abundant rainfall, there is often more run-off water than local and regional stormwater drains and city sewage systems can manage. When this is the case, water overflow must be rerouted and stored in wet basins or retention ponds, where the excess water can gradually be accumulated, treated and released gradually in a safe manner back into the greater environment.
There are multiple protocols that impact retention pond water quality management, including the need to create a vegetation perimeter to foster a naturally functioning eco-system. Water sources, which are delivered from storm drains to water holding areas, must be properly treated to minimize the risk of an overgrowth of contaminants, bacteria, algae and parasites.
HASA’s concentrated sodium hypochlorite water treatment solutions can help neutralize wet basins to ensure they play a safe, healthy role in managing water overflow. Discover more about our industrial grade sodium hypochlorite formulations and recommended delivery and water management methods.
Discover why HASA is the go-to source for premier water treatment and sanitization on the market today—and why more major industries are turning to liquid sodium hypochlorite as the most trusted, economical water decontaminant available.
