Earth Calendar for March 28th and 29th
If you're thinking of improving the appearance of your pond or adding a pond to your landscape, the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District will be offering a free pond clinic for county citizens. Topics will include pond maintenance, safety, regulations, stocking, aeration, weed control, hazardous algae, construction, nuisance wildlife, and storm water retention ponds. These ponds you see in many newer subdivisions not only provide a scenic addition to the community landscape, they are also beneficial to the environment. When properly cared for, these storm water retention ponds limit flooding and remove a number of pollutants. Retention ponds communities serve a valuable purpose in containing the runoff but must be cared for and maintained properly. For more information on the clinic or to register, call (513) 732-7075 or visit Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District's website.
