The Integrated Pond
Enhancing the Design and Value of Stormwater Ponds
This document will be of interest to developers, landscape architects and homeowners who want stormwater tracts to double as attractive community space as well as for stormwater management. The Integrated Pond is a companion to the King County Surface Water Design Manual, and provides information on how to make stormwater pond property look good while still meeting the design and access requirements of the Manual. Several pictures of well-integrated, multi-functional ponds are given, along with addresses so the reader may visit the sites if they wish.
