The Pond on Traverwood?

Question Corner: December 2017

by Tim Athan

From the December, 2017 issue

Q. What is going on with the pond on Traverwood just south of the Oak Cliff apartments? It looks like they were "draining the pond," but the city posted a stop-work order.

A. "In July, the property owner dredged a detention basin; however, the wrong pond was dredged resulting in the disruption of a wetland," emails city spokesperson Robert Kellar. "Upon discovering this, city staff placed a stop work order on the site until a corrective plan was in place. The property owner worked with their wetland consultant, city staff, and the city's wetland consultant to develop a plan to restore the impacted wetlands. City staff approved the plan, issued applicable permits, and [corrective] work is underway."
