This 1.5 hour program covers how to evaluate ponds to determine if it is an asset to a property or a major liability. This course provides an overview of ponds, their maintenance, care and upkeep. Attendees will learn about the basic structures of a pond, how to assess their condition, and the potential costs of remediating existing issues in a pond. This course is relevant to real estate agents, new landowners, and those in the market for a new property.

  • Fish stocking expense
  • Leaking pond repair costs and expenses
  • Benefits of a balanced pond system
