Pond (Retention pond)


Building with Nature

Created at: 23 Apr 2022


3 ponds in Ruchill Park to manage excess surface water, reduce the risk of flooding and reduce the risk of pollution entering streams and rivers. They use natural methods to store water, providing base level of treatment, and then controlling its release. Their use also has the benefit of contributing to biodiversity and nature conservation. Each pond feeds the adjacent lower pond by gravity and eventually discharges through a pipe, under a local street, to the local canal system.
