FAQs

  • What are the objects in Community Park Pond?
    • Limno-Corrals are plastic tubes that extend down to the bottom of the designated body of water where they are then anchored in place and efficiently sealed to prevent seepage.
    • They section off a portion of the water so that it can be tested and treated without treating the whole pond.
  • Why are they here?
    • The city is looking into alternative treatment methods to improve pond water quality.
  • Why this pond?
    • This pond has the perfect depth, usage and accessibility for this project.
  • How long will they be here for?
    • They will remain here until October/November of 2018.
  • Can I still drive my Remote Control Boats Here?
    • Yes!  We just ask that you keep a minimum of 5ft away from the corrals so they do not get disturbed.
