On-Going Pond Survey

Swanland Festival ?

After putting on Festivals every 2 years since 2000 the organisers understandably want to step back.

However discussions are ongoing and it is hoped to be able to put something in place for 2020.

Any one who is prepared to help please contact any of the SVA Committee

This page will keep you informed.

Further surveys of the pond walls and pond bed were carried out on 22nd and 29th November by civil engineers Masonclark Associates in a bid to discover evidence of leakage around its perimeter. After substantial rainfall the pond level rises but then drops to around the 21cm mark on the pond depth gauge. If there was a leak from the bottom of the pond bed the water level would continue to fall. Stabilisation over the winter months around 21cm suggests there is leakage at or above this level or from the raised areas of pond bed in front of the village hall and within the marshy area.

The survey has been paid for by the Parish Council and will also provide useful information about the topography of the pond bed and its surrounding infrastructure. We await the final report and recommendations with interest.

There is also suspected leakage issue from the inlet pipe at the NW corner (by the village sign) which indicates that the pond may not be getting the full amount of water from the road drains.

For up-dates on all pond information keep on eye on the Pond Partnership page.
