I just had a walk through with the city and the contractor that will be doing the pond dredging and have some details on the project. All ponds on the course are holding ponds for storm runoff from the streets and roads around the course. Over the course of the last 11 years, sediment has accumulated at the end of the storm drains that flow into the ponds. This sediment will over time slow the proper movement of water throughout the system and needs to be removed. The City hired a contractor to complete the work but they are working with Hawks Landing to make sure everything is done to limit any damage to the golf course. The plans are to start sometime next week and the project should only take about 3 weeks to complete. From my observation today, I feel that there should be only minor restoration work on the actual golf course. The city are mapped out access points to mostly fescue areas on the course. The end result will be that the islands we all see at the end of the storms drains will be gone and the ponds will look much better when we complete the work.
