Photos of Hurst Village Duck Pond.
A selection of photos taken of Hurst village pond during a major maintenance and drought future proofing exercise.
During hot weather with prolonged dry spells, evaporation is a naturally occurring phenomenon that will unfortunately happen again if global warming continues as it is.
Long term solutions are being looked at to supply the pond with water during droughts.
Test trenches shown were dug to depths of between 2 and 4 meters below pond bed, clay was found throughout.
Total area of "Townsend" Hurst village pond approximately: 1,619.17 m² (17,428.58 ft²) ( 0.4 acre)
