Tamworth Regional Council
A team of four from Tamworth-based Aquanorth used bobcats to remove excess organic material and silty clays from the base of the pond next to the Tamworth Light Horse Memorial and have started the process on the larger pond near the White Street carpark.
The base of the ponds will be reshaped and the depth increased from the current levels of between 600mm and 1000mm to a maximum of 1.8 metres before a geosynthetic liner is laid. A select 300mm layer of the clay being removed will be spread on top of the liner to make it impermeable before the ponds are refilled and the surrounds are landscaped, including pockets of gardens along the edge.
Tamworth Regional Council Parks and Horticulture Projects and Assets Officer Grant Reeckmann said not only will the ponds look more attractive once the work is complete in about six weeks’ time, they will be more environmentally sustainable.
“A water efficiency audit revealed the ponds were leaking, making frequent water top-ups from town water necessary,” he said.
"There will be considerable water savings by stopping the leaks – the reduced water costs will actually mean the work will pay for itself in about two years."
“We have also sunk a bore to service the ponds. The quality of the water is excellent and it is expected no potable water will need to be used for the ponds."
“A 24-hour flow test will be done on the bore in conjunction with filling the ponds. This will confirm the efficiency of the bore as a sustainable supply source for the ponds.”
Work on the project started in late March when the ponds were drained and left to dry out. The pond near the White Street car park, with a capacity of 2.2 Megalitres, was part of the original park plan completed in 1988, while the other smaller pond was built in the mid-1990s. Its capacity is 1.3 Megalitres. An average Olympic-sized swimming pool holds 2.5 Megalitres of water.
