The reservoir has already been cleared of silt and new bank protection is being made.
Until the end of the year, the Kola Pond in the north-east of Moscow will be landscaped. The specialists of the municipal economy complex have already cleared the reservoir with an area of 0.55 hectares from silt and dismantled the old reinforced concrete slabs of bank protection.
Now they are making a new bank protection from a monolithic structure, it will be covered with a waterproofing compound. From the side of Shady Passage, the bank will be made sloping. This promotes the accumulation of moisture and is convenient for waterfowl to come ashore.
In addition, they will form a new shape of the bottom and make a reliable waterproof layer. At the same time, the discovered outlets into the pond of groundwater will be preserved. There will be four bioplato zones in the reservoir. They will be planted with narrow-leaved cattail, rooting reeds, common reeds, yellow pods, umbelliferae and water lilies. These aquatic plants inhibit the growth of blooming algae and provide shelter for fish and waterfowl.
The first mention of the Kola Pond dates back to the 18th century. The village of Medvedkovo was located on its banks. The pond received its modern name at the end of the 1990s – after the name of the nearby Kola Street.
The Kola Pond is located on the territory of the future Yauza Park. It is planned to improve two more ponds in the park – First and Second Lazorevye.
