The pond renovation project has begun at Whitham Woods. All vegetation has been cleared from around the pond, the dam was breached and the pond drained.
In the process, approximately 200 fish were collected and moved to ponds within Jefferson County Park.
The pond will need to dry completely before the silt can be removed and work can continue.
This renovation may take several months to complete and it is the type of project where a big mess must be made in order to end up with a nice finished project.
