Ponds require less maintenance than grass and can serve a variety of purposes:

• Add aesthetic value to your property
• Support the growth of wildlife
• Recreational ponds are great for things like swimming, fishing, paddling, and ice skating
• Stormwater ponds collect stormwater and release it at a rate that prevents flooding and erosion
• Ponds are an excellent backup source of water in case of a fire. It can take fire departments longer to reach rural locations, and ponds can offer a sense of security to residents
• Farm ponds can be used for flood and erosion control, water supply for livestock

The Ohio Pond Management Handbook is a great resource for owners of new ponds, old ponds, or landowners who plan to build a pond.
