While taking into
account the reasons for the western ponds creation and reasons for maintenance
including drainage, aeration and species addition, is the western pond a balanced
ecosystem that manages the life that resides in it at an ideal level.
Science Ideas covered:
Phosphorus, Fecal Coliform )
We believe that
even though Miami has taken steps to balance the system it will still be at
a significantly lower health level then a natural pond.
We predict that
the health of the pond has been at a disequilibrium over the last few years
