The use of retention basins are an important way to prevent
flooding and downstream erosion, and improve water quality in an
adjacent river, stream, lake or bay. However, these basins often
have challenges of their own.
Mosquito Control - Without natural predators, mosquito populations
can quickly become a health hazard. Stocking certain types of
native fish in your retention basin can help control the mosquito
population by feeding on their aquatic larvae. We sell several
species of native minnows for this purpose.
Odor Control - Installing an aerator adds oxygen to improve water
quality and prevent offensive odors from anaerobic sediments.
Supplemental aeration also allows aerobic bacteria to decompose
organic matter and debris. Some aeration devices can be adapted for
intermittent water levels and to meet new EPA guidelines for
reducing suspended solids. View our online catalog to find the
aerator that best suits your needs.
Runoff Control - Wetland plants can be used to filter the outfall
area of the retention basin and reduce the release of sediments and
