Why Do I Want a Retention Pond?
If you’re looking to build new structures on land that you already own and it’s near a river or in a particularly wet area, then you very well might need a retention pond Texas.

In many cases, there are state regulations requiring land that is near certain waterways to have retention ponds there to prevent too much water from other sources from getting into that particular fount, either because it would become polluted and risk drinking water or has some major ecological connection that can’t be disturbed.
On that note, a retention pond can keep topsoil and other nutritive dirt from being washed away by providing a place for rain runoff to go that doesn’t involve flowing through your property. A well-conceived and built pond can channel excess water into it so you don’t have to worry about being flooded out every time it rains.
Why Don’t I Want a Retention Pond?
Not all land is suited to a retention pond. Texas is a complex state with lots of different environments, and some of them just aren’t good for that sort of thing. If you’re in a dry area or an area that has become dry recently, you might not need that retention pond that was dug on your property years ago. In fact, it may be channeling all of the water there when you really want it on your lawn or feeding your crops.
Since retention ponds are standing water, you might also find that living near one can pose a problem in mosquito season since that’s where they like to lay their eggs. Places near standing water often have much bigger issues with water-born bugs than places without.
