ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Adopt-A-Pond Program partners with communities to improve the water quality, wildlife habitat and appearance of stormwater ponds. Our program guides you through the initial steps to help you learn how to properly care for your pond for the long-term. But the project success ultimately depends on you! There are no fees or costs required to participate in this program. Simply apply to see if your pond qualifies.
