A Few Health and Safety Tips

  • Mosquitoes should not be a problem if the wetland is designed correctly and maintained adequately
  • Design the wetland with some deeper zones of permanent water where mosquito fish can be stocked.
  • Avoid planting certain vegetation that provides habitat for mosquitoes
  • Avoid any potential drowning incidents by including a shallow shelf along the edge of the deeper zones
  • Snakes and other wildlife will be a natural part of the stormwater wetland.
  • Small children should always be accompanied when exploring the area.
