WHEN IT COMES TO FLOODING, PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE – WITHOUT EXCEPTION. WHICH IS WHY OUR ATTENUATION PONDS ARE BEST CONSTRUCTED IN THE EARLY STAGES OF YOUR BUILT DEVELOPMENT ALREADY.
Also referred to as a ‘detention’ or ‘retention pond’ or ‘detention basin,’ our attenuation ponds are typically constructed in the early stages of a built development - to retain and manage stormwater and prevent flooding.
Simply put, an attenuation pond serves as a temporary reservoir to ‘catch’ and store large volumes of stormwater, and then gradually and safely releases it into the vegetation that has been planted around it, or into the existing stormwater system.
Some additional benefits of attenuation ponds include prevention of erosion and enhancement of water quality in an adjacent lake, dam or river. The x-factor of any attenuation pond constructed by EIS (humbly said), is that it is both built-for-purpose and built-to-last. Guaranteed.
