ENR 4900.01 Pond

The bioreserve, or retention, pond at the Olentangy River Wetland Research Park is connected to the swale system which is filled through the experimental wetlands. The pond is approximately 6 feet deep and is groundwater fed. So, if there is low water flow into the experimental wetlands and the swale dries out, the pond provides a refuge for fish, amphibians, and invertebrates that would not be able to survive lower water conditions. The pond can also be a great spot to see waterfowl and other wildlife.
