The reservoirs will be cleaned of silt and soil, completely renew the coastal strip and create bioplato zones with aquatic vegetation.
A cascade of three ponds in a residential area on Vernadsky Avenue will be landscaped by the end of the year. This was reported in the municipal economy complex.
Water bodies with a total area of 0.65 hectares will be cleaned of silt sediment and soil, completely renew the 645-meter coastal strip and create bioplato zones with aquatic vegetation.
Ponds No. 1, 2 and 3 in quarter 32–33 in the South-West Administrative District are located in a picturesque area inside a residential area. Together they form an oblong cascade, on the banks of which there are benches for resting among the trees.
However, the design of the coastlines fell into disrepair, the accumulation of silt deposits led to the overgrowth of algae in the ponds, and the flow of water between the ponds was disrupted due to inoperative water outlets.
On the first two ponds of the cascade, the bottom sediment has already been cleaned out and the bottom deepened, the reinforced concrete structures of the coastal strip have been completely replaced, and a waterproof layer of a strong and elastic membrane was laid on the bottom.
Now the ponds are filled with water up to standard levels. After that, the specialists will start planting aquatic plants in the created bioplato zones – reeds, iris, umbelliferae and yellow egg capsules. This aquatic vegetation will prevent water bloom and provide shelter for fish and nesting grounds for waterfowl.
At pond no. 3, similar work began at the end of September. By the end of 2021, the main work will be completed on it, and the plants will be planted next year.
All ponds will be equipped with new bottom outlets to regulate the water level.
