Sediment Control Pond, not a holding pond. These are supposed to be
designed to contain sediment from all upstream runoff.
Sediment control pond.
Dredging of sediment from sediment control ponds is required as the
ponds frequently fill in. Dredging should be performed on frequent
basis to keep the maximum storage capacity available in the ponds in
the event of a serious rainfall or erosion/sediment event.
Two sediment ponds in series, combined are less than 2 acres in size,
very narrow and relatively shallow. These 2 ponds are supposed to
contain sediment from over 600 acres.
