The Third Street Water Quality Pond being constructed behind the Library is a Stormwater Retention Pond. Click the link to find out what the difference between the Retention and Detention pond is. The Engineer of the pond has provided us with this information on expected water levels.

Normal water depth in the pond is 5 feet.
Normal upper limit of water depth (flow entering 4’ wide by 6’ long outfall structure) is 10 feet.
Maximum water depth under extreme conditions before over-topping the side bank is 13 feet.

The pond will fill up with water after the stormwater sewers are installed and connected.
