5.8.2 Langdon Lake Wetland Detention Pond
|Project||Langdon Lake Wetland Detention Pond|
|Description||Construction of a stormwater treatment pond at the former wastewater lagoon site. If an alum injection system is selected as one of the strategies to control internal loading, this pond could serve as the floc settling basin.|
The phosphorus reduction plan for Langdon Lake requires a reduction of 99 pounds of phosphorus per year from external sources. A wet detention pond is proposed for consideration at the former wastewater lagoon site, which drains subwatersheds LL-1 through LL-4 and part of LL-5. It would be sized to remove 50 percent of the incoming load. The estimated project cost assumes there would be no land acquisition cost as the necessary land is currently publicly owned.
If an alum injection system is constructed as the preferred internal load management option, then this pond would be necessary to serve as the floc settling pond, although that project if constructed by itself would provide some treatment for runoff from the subwatershed.
|Outcome||This pond could remove an estimated 45 pounds of phosphorus annually, along with other pollutants such as sediment.|
