Private Recreational Pond Establishment

Project Summary

Timmons Group completed the establishment of a private recreational pond for a confidential client.  The project included a full service planning, design, and permitting delivery addressing unique site characteristics including the presence of unstable, abandoned pit and shallow subsurface coal mine features.  The project design was able to successfully eliminate these abandoned mine land features through the establishment of the pond and the use of surplus excavated soil to fill and grade adjacent hazard features.  The pond has been stocked and is an actively maturing, self-sustaining fish habitat.
