Smart Water: Stormwater Ponds That Manage Themselves
JUNE 27/JULY 4, 2022
On June 9, a pond near Port Tampa Bay began emptying itself. The water level in the pond dropped about 10 in., emptying almost 70,000 cu ft of water into Tampa Bay. It wasn’t quite enough to catch the 2.8 in. of rain that fell in one hour on June 10, but Jeff Littlejohn, president with National Stormwater Trust (NST) considers it
a success for the group’s new Smart Pond technology.
