Jacksonville City Council members LeAnna Cumber, District 5, and Ju’Coby Pittman, District 8, have launched an awareness campaign in an effort to inform residents about the potential dangers and important functions of retention ponds. The campaign features a web page, PondSafetyJax.com, which provides information discouraging the use of retention ponds for recreational activities, like swimming, boating and fishing. In addition to the list of hazards, visitors will also find a map with the locations of City-managed ponds; safety tips, including how to get out of a pond after an accidental slip; and information about ponds’ crucial roles in water quality treatment and flood control.
