Pond (Retention pond)

Created at: 20 Apr 2022


The pond, has a volume of 2,070m3, has been in existence for over forty years and was originally a farm irrigation pond constructed on a small stream. When the M9 motorway extension was built in 1994, the pond’s location was convenient enough to be used as part of the drainage scheme. pond lies within 400m of the end of the main runway of Edinburgh airport. The pond margins are designed to prevent wildlife habitats by the suppression of ground cover and peripheral vegetation which reduces the habitat for many birds which might nest in such surroundings.
