Diverting pond water from contaminant in sea to benefit in garden

  • Location
    Reseda, California

The Problem

Students will divert pond water which is currently going into the streets and eventually to the sea to a tree garden. The sea will benefit because we will no longer be contributing to the massive amount of fertilizer that ends up in the ocean. The trees will benefit because they will have a rich source of nitrogen delivered from our goose/duck pond.

Our Plan

We will put in some plumbing on the pipes that leave the sand filter. This new plumbing is a device that will re-route the water into two hoses. The hoses will then run along the fence until they reach our two gardens that have trees
