VIDEO: Flower Mound Ponds Dredging Wrapped Up
A major dredging project to reduce odor and restore the natural bottom of three Flower Mound park ponds is now complete and the fish have been restocked, The Town of Flower Mound, Texas, said in its latest announcement.
Under this cleanup scheme, the dredging works were conducted at Cortadera, Wilkerson and Rheudasil Ponds.
In addition to dredging, Rheudasil Pond needed bank stabilization in order to keep the shoreline from eroding outward into the park, according to the town.
Crews installed slope revetment material and sod around the entire pond, along with a retaining wall at the northern end of the pond where the bank was the steepest, which will also increase accessibility for residents using the shores for fishing or other activities.
