After completion of the work, they plan to improve the boulevard area near the pond.

This year, Mikhailovsky Pond will be put in order in Zelenograd. It is located in the Kryukovo district. This was reported in the press service of the Moscow municipal economy complex.

A pond with an area of ​​more than 1.8 hectares will be cleared of silt. The depth of the pond will be increased by a meter, this will achieve the necessary temperature balance between the layers of water. So it will be possible to avoid overgrowing of the reservoir in the warm season. After that, coarse-grained sand and a water-resistant layer will be laid on the bottom to prevent shallowing.

The nearly 900-meter-long coastline will be strengthened by gunning, in which a special mortar is applied in layers under compressed air pressure. This method makes the structure more waterproof and frost-resistant. Part of the coast will be sloping to make it easier for waterfowl to get out of the water.

Works on the pond are already underway, now it is easier and faster to remove silt accumulations. At negative air temperatures, they freeze through, become thick and less fluid. In addition, in winter, the inflow of groundwater and rainfall into the reservoir practically stops. Due to this, work can be done faster and easier. In addition, it is planned to improve the boulevard area near the pond.

The work site was fenced off, and residents were provided with access to significant social facilities — schools and kindergartens.

Mikhailovsky Pond is located in the valley of the Kamenka River. There is a small island in the middle of the reservoir, and a pedestrian bridge separates the northern part from the main water area.

This is not the first reservoir in Zelenograd, which is being put in order. In 2021, we completed the comprehensive landscaping of the coastal zone of the nearby Nizhny Kamensky Pond. Specialists arranged a picnic area, installed gazebos and barbecues, benches and new lighting poles, and updated the lawns.
