Mason District Pond, Follow the Progress 1
Construction Starts at Mason District Park Pond
The existing farm pond on Fairfax County Park Authority was attractive from afar (left), but a closer look (middle) showed debris, washed out banks, and erosion downstream. The Park Authority had the lake drained (right) and the water rerouted to the stream below so a new, larger pond and dam could be constructed. At one end of the new pond will be a forebay to trap litter and sediments. The other end will have a constant pool of water. Connecting the forebay and permanent pool will be a meandering baseflow channel through wetland plantings.
