The Endangered Species, Heinz Emerald Dragonfly Project for the 355 Tollway Extension built by Ponds Inc. of Illinois www.ponds-inc.com
SPECIAL PROJECT
These are special ponds designed to be breeding ponds for the endangered Heinz Emerald Dragonflies located in Lemont, Illinois. This project was done for the Illinois Tollway Authority and the Dupage County Forest Preserve and overseen by university specialist. This project was required when the Interstate 355 tollway extension project, from Interstate 55 to Interstate 80, was constructed resulting in a direct effect on the environment and the endangered dragonflies. This whole project was documented by the History Channel's television series, Modern Marvels. A natural, iron rich well, as is seen by the deep orange color on the waterfall and pond stones, is distributed via ductile water main to each pond, and then after entering the specially engineered skimmer units, is discharged out the rear of the skimmer to the natural rivulets that the dragonflies use to reproduce. An underground valving system regulates the flow and is constantly adjusted by the university researchers. Some flow rates produce more algae than others. We at Ponds Inc. of Illinois were honored to be part of such an interesting, low visibility project that has been a big impact on the environment! www.ponds-inc.com
