With numerous pieces of trucks, specialized equipment and personnel Drew Fuel Services has the ability to conduct Wet and Dry pond maintenance and cleaning throughout the eastern seaboard. Currently (3/2017) Drew Fuel Services have over 600 sites under management that utilize wet and dry pond maintenance services.
Drew Fuel Services offers monthly pond maintenance contracts that cover all aspects of pond maintenance. Our services include the following:
A pond is a type of stormwater management facility designed to collect rainwater and pollutants while preventing downstream flooding. Wet ponds always will have a pool of water and dry ponds will only have water after a storm. Ponds can have many different designs, including ponds with concrete, dry ponds with sand filters and ponds that provide wetland habitats around the edges.
Ponds have a dam to hold back the water entering the pond. Most dams are earthen and are grass covered. Almost all stormwater ponds have a control structure that releases water at a slower rate than the storm water entering the pond. While water remains in the pond, pollutants are then able to settle to the bottom.
Ponds play an important part to keep streams and rivers clean, fishable and swimmable by removing pollutants.
Ponds that are not maintained cause pollutants to streams and rivers, cost more to repair if left unchecked, cause flooding, and could lead to downstream flooding and erosion.
