Did you know that the pond at Generations Park is actually a stormwater retention pond?
Stormwater can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants and flow into a storm sewer system or directly into a pond (such as the pond at the Generations Park), stream, river, wetland, or lake. Stormwater enters the drainage system, including local streams and creeks, untreated.
