Report on the Role of Regional Ponds
In 2002, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to form a multi-agency committee to develop a unified position on the use of regional ponds, as well as alternative types of stormwater controls, as watershed management tools. The report concluded that regional ponds should not be considered the preferred alternative, but just one of many tools considered for stormwater management. The subcommittee identified 61 recommendations that support this position and outlined ways to improve Fairfax County's stormwater management program.
