Tanners Lake Tartan High School Pond
A high quality wetland constructed to treat water before reaching Tanners lake.
The Tanners Lake Tartan High School Pond project was constructed between two schools to treat and detain stormwater runoff from the area. We wanted to detain as much water as possible on the school property before it discharged to Tanners Lake. A standpipe was installed on the southern end of the basin, which routes water to a holding pond at a lower elevation. The slopes of the pond were planted by volunteers with emergent vegetation, shrubs and prairie species.
*This project is part of a larger plan called Tanners Water Quality Improvements, which was implemented based on results of a diagnostic feasibility study that began in 1989.
