[ARCHIVED] Pond maintenance after the flooding

Roads and bridges may be all over the news, but they are not the only infrastructure impacted by the recent rainfall and flooding experienced in Colorado. Stormwater systems, including permanent water quality BMPs, were overwhelmed in many areas and may no longer function as designed until they are properly maintained and repaired. In those areas, sediment and debris removal will be required at all types of BMPs. Other issues to look for include damaged inlet and outlet structures, clogged underdrains, erosion and dead/dying vegetation. Now is the time to inspect stormwater BMPs, and make plans to maintain/repair BMPs as soon as possible.
