New Bern, NC received a notice of violation on this stormwater retention pond from DWQ (Division of Water Quality) out of the Washington, NC branch. The stormwater device was severely overgrown with heavy vegetation. The swells leading to the pond had 4 inch pine trees growing in them.
Stormwater Solutions has been on site draining the pond and removing the vegetation from the pond banks and swells. In the coming week, we will work closely with an engineer to get the pond back into compliance. We will reshape the banks, remove the sediment , stabilize and add wetland plants.
